Right before Christmas, I received my "round robin" bracelet back from the journey it's been on for the past year. My theme was "mother nature, earth goddess," and I asked everyone to stick with blues and greens, with copper findings. Above is the beautiful finished work of collaborative art! If you remember from the original post, a journal went along with the bracelet. The person right before me in the sequence still has it, along with her final charm, so I haven't yet read the thoughts and purpose behind each artist's contribution, but I'm looking forward to reading that and wearing this!
As that year-long project finished up, I looked back on my goals for 2013. Luckily, I kept them within reason - nothing too ambitious! I completed most of them (see them here), thanks to my FANE group. I completed the two pieces for our group shows, experimented with adding text to my art, and played with my silver Artclay kit. I haven't yet added a bio or gallery pages to my blog - that can be recycled for this year. Although I didn't create a huge quantity of art, I was happy with the quality of each piece.
One of the year's highlights was having our kimono-inspired pieces on display in Manhattan (see this post here). It's so great to be part of this group, which pushes me to challenge myself, and takes me places I never thought I'd go! I'm looking forward to new challenges and successes as I step into the New Year. (I'll save my new goals for the next post...)
