I tried. I did my best. But I've dropped out of the Ring A Day challenge. It was too much for me. Not necessarily the time it took to make and photograph some of my rings, but the mental, designing, daydreaming portion.
I really admire all of the participants who have stuck to their guns and will continue making a ring per day until December 31, 2010. Even when they just wrap the napkin from dinner around their fingers and snap the pic with a cell phone - it's an admirable undertaking.
And there is some truly amazing work being done, some stunning photos being taken and some inspiring imagination being sparked. Thanks to everyone! And to Nina for starting the whole thing in the first place.

I'm taking a class with Andy Cooperman this weekend in San Diego. You may remember his name from this post. Tonya Davidson will be there too and I get to see an old friend from the Bead Company who's visiting her Mom there.
One of the projects is to set a real glass eye somehow. The mask in position 7 is an example from Flickr of something (someone I don't know) made in a similar class. Can't wait to see what I come up with!

There is some amazing work being done in Faux Bone these days. Some of these designs are old friends and some were new to me. I'm in love with Shane Case's ring (on the hand)! Wish I'd thought of it. ;D
