Challenge Yourself....

by MaryAnn Carroll

There is still time left to enter our Call-to-Create Challenge, which you can easily link to by clicking the button on the left side of the blog.  We are offering some fabulous prizes as you can see on the right side of the blog.   In addition to those, you will also have a spot on the side bar of our blog which is reserved for the monthly winner.  The winning piece will be displayed here for 1 month as well as having your piece displayed on our website indefinitely....  Here are the winning pages from the past couple of challenges......



The challenge this month is to include something that you made.  A few tutorials have been offered to help you out.  You can find Kelli's clasp tutorial, Barbara's clasp tutorial or my earrings tutorial by clickling....

or

See.....isn't that easy?  How about challenging yourself a little this year?  If you are someone who already creates handmade components, we would love to see your finished work as well. 

Now...

How about a little walk through Etsy?  You might like or be inspired by some of these handmade beads and components.  You can read more about each item by clicking the caption under the pictures.

And remember....buttons make very unique clasps or focal pieces in your jewelry designs.  An example of a button clasp is seen below in the picture by TocaDora Leather.

I love being able to actually take the time to learn about artists that I hadn't known about before. I don't always have the time to search on Etsy for the latest....
