I am super excited to be participating in RAW's first blog carnival! This month's topic is:
What was your inspiration for participating in RAW?
My first inspiration would have to be following Tomi through last year's Ring a Day project on her blog. I really admire her and the others who made it all the way through. With ring a week, I am already a week behind. How in the world did these people manage a ring a day? It is beyond me.
When Tomi announced in December that she'd be starting a RAW group. I started toying with the idea of joining. I figured I could handle a ring a week! I started off with all kinds of big plans...I wanted every week to make a ring using a technique I had never tried before. And I still plan on using this project to try some new things.

Another inspiration was to get to know some other jewelry artists. And I have to say that there is some amazing talent in this group. Seeing some of the skills that different artists use inspires me to move beyond my own limitations. To try new techniques and to take chances. To expand my mind and allow myself to go places I may not have gone before.
I look forward to seeing what the rest of this project brings for me, and for the other artists that are participating.
