Ring lovers, take note! You are definitely going to want to see this volume, Ring a Day, from Lark Publishing. Marthe Le Van has chosen 700 photos from last year's Ring a Day challenge. Marthe writes in the introduction, "When I heard that a group of jewelers was creating one new ring per day for an entire calendar year, three thoughts immediately came to mind -- This is brilliant! This is completely mad! Where do I sign up?"
Some of the entries are wearable and wonderful. Some will make you scratch your head. Others will make you roll your eyes. All will make you wonder why you didn't get in on this project :-) That's why I'm telling you about it now...what's to prevent you from setting up a challenge like this with some of your friends? There's a whole new year coming soon...
The participants are listed and all the photos are identified by materials, artist, and technique, but this is purely not a project book. It's a chronicle and an inspiration, but you'll find no instructions here, just great photos!
***Free Stuff Alert!!!***
And now you have a chance to win this book! Just leave me a comment below and you'll automatically be entered to win. If you tweet or post on Facebook or other social spots about the contest, you can leave a second comment and be entered twice!
Please make sure that your link will lead me to an email address, or else I won't be able to contact you. No contact, no win, and I simply have to go on to the next person. Deadline: December 19, 2011.
