New Art November

New Art November

I have quite a few friends doing #NaNoWriMo this year. It’s an effort to write a novel (50,000 words) in one month. It’s every November, and I’m always impressed by folks who do it. I’m not a writer, but I wanted to do something like that this year. So I created #NewArtNov and I’m committing to making 50 new jewelry pieces from my existing stash (of beads and gemstones and crystals and wire and cord and findings) this month. I’m up to 8, which is a little behind (I should have 11 by¬† now if I want to average 1.6 creations per day to get 50 in 30 days), but I’m so happy to be pushing myself to create. I’ll post each week’s progress here, and I’m tweeting daily @RocksMapsCrafts if you want to follow me there. All these creations are for sale, of course. Though I did make the “Rainy Day” necklace for myself – I have enough of the tiny labradorite drops to make two more of those and that’ll be it. :)
Please enjoy my burst of creativity this month! Here are the first 5. I’ll post 6-8 tomorrow.
