My daily creative challenge for 2020

Happy 2020! Three years ago I started a daily creative project, to draw a pair of earrings every day. It was simple, I got behind, I got back on track, and by the end of the year I had more than 300 drawings of earrings, plus I really enjoyed the attempt at a daily creative practice. In 2018 I took this idea a bit further and made myself slightly more accountable by starting a new daily challenge and posting the results online! That was my year of making a piece of recycled glass jewellery, and it was awesome to make something nearly every day! In 2019 I tried to do a similar challenge, but it was slightly less successful, because life kind of got in the way a bit more. And that was OK, that was 2019. But as I reflected on my practice and my creative journey, I decided to take on a new daily challenge for 2020. Introducing….my year of making a pair of earrings every day! I am excited about this challenge. It’s going to be fun because I am not limiting the type of glass I can use. This year you will see a mix of recycled and Italian glass beads. And you will also still see some necklaces and bracelets along the way! I look forward to seeing where this project takes me. Today on day 1, I have made a pair of earrings featuring beads made from gin and tonic bottles.
