WOW! We're all so excited about the response to our very first Art Jewelry Boot Camp! Staci & I have worked really hard along with the other members here at LMAJ to come up with this new concept and there is always a little trepidation with putting your new idea out there in the Universe to see if it will take root!
Just in case you missed it, last week was our first blog hop, and we invited you to share what you have learned or challenged yourself to based on our current challenge, the balled headpin.
Not just for wire wrapping dangles, we challenged you to innovate with the balled headpin: begin making your own, double balling them, trying different metals, and using them in other ways!
Let's take a look over some of my personal favorites from the blogs and see what neat solutions and challenges were made and conquered!
Love the subtle and sweet complexity of these handmade chandelier earrings by Libellula Jewelry!
I think turning balled wire into its own element and giving a bit of texture is a wonderful and creative solution! by silverniknats
If you missed participating, stay tuned! We'll be revealing our next new challenge in a few short weeks, followed by lots of tips and tutorials to inspire!
