1 Challenge per Month

2 Pieces of Jewelry per Month

24 New Pieces of Jewelry by the End of the Year!

I decided that this year I’m going to make a set of jewelry each month.

Then I decided to invite everyone else to do it with me, and call it:  Project Jewelry.

  • Each month I’ll give you a challenge.
  • Each month make 2 pieces of jewelry of your choice.
  • Take a photo of your finished 2 pieces
  • Then write a blog post about it, post the photo on flickr or facebook and post a link in the comments, OR if you aren’t really online and still want to participate, just email your photos!
  • NEW!!  Make sure I have a way to email you because everyone who participates gets a free PDF jewelry tutorial/pattern from me!

You’ll get to see everyone’s creations and we can all get inspiration from each other!

You don’t even need to know how to make jewelry because if you sign up for the Project Jewelry Newsletter (see below), you’ll get my free guide to simple stringing to get you started!

Also browse my blog for free jewelry tutorials.  (Or join my tutorial newsletter to gain access to even more free jewelry tutorials!)

Using each monthly challenge for inspiration, make 2 of the following each month:  earrings, bracelet, necklace, anklet, brooch, anklet or ring.  They don’t have to necessarily be a set (but they can be), nor do they necessarily need to go together, but they do need to fit in with the challenge in some way.

When you’re done, take a photo and blog, add to flickr, etc. and link on the monthly challenge post.  Or, if you can just email me photos of your pieces and I’ll post them on the wrap up post.

Each month everyone who participates will receive a free tutorial/pattern from me – it will change each month.

Make sure to sign up for the email newsletter (below) to get a reminder each week about the challenge.  You’ll also get a free digital mini program to get you started on making jewelry:  Simple Stringing for Beginners.

That way, even if you’re not a jewelry designer yet, you can get started and join in now!

Don’t worry, this is a no judgment zone.  Any comments that are negative in any way will be deleted and I will in no way be “judging” your work.  This is just a fun, laid back challenge.

At the end of the year you’ll have at least 24 new pieces of jewelry and tons of fun making it!  (Plus lots of new tutorials and patterns to try out!)

I will post the challenge on the 1st day of the month right here on the blog and send out a newsletter.  You’ll have until the end of the month to create your jewelry and post the link here.  The winner will also be announced on the 1st day of the following month.

I cannot wait to get started and see what everyone creates!

  1. I subscribed to both the newsletters and the tutorials. i have been able to download the wire wrapping tutorials, but i cannot find the stringing tutorial. I got the password in the subscription confirmation, but I don’t know where to access the tutorial to be able to use the password. Sandy (aka flowerthread53)

    • It comes as a link in the welcome email from the newsletter for the Project Jewelry newsletter. It’s not on the private page. I’ll send it to you in a separate email. Sorry about any confusion!
