Jewelry Making Mojo Challenge

Happy Monday! It's time for a big challenge.  I need some motivation and inspiration and I love working with kindred spirits to keep it fun!

Last week on the Art Bead scene I posted 10 Tricks to Get Your Jewelry Design Mojo back. You can read the post here and see the graphic below. I couldn't help think this would be an awesome 12 week online challenge.

Join me every Monday for a weekly assignment to get your creative juices flowing.  You can share your results on the blog post from each Monday. 

Challenge Prize:
What's a challenge without a prize? You can enter each week by sharing your link on the Monday blog posts.  At the end of the 12 weeks I will draw one random winner for a $100 Humblebeads.com gift certificate. Each week you have a chance to enter by participating.

Rules:
The only rule is to participate in the weekly challenge.  Share your link or comment on the blog post for each challenge.

FAQs:
Participating may or may not end in a finished piece of jewelry, so you may blog about your process or your inspiration for the week. Share your blog post or photos in the Facebook group or here on the weekly blog post.

You don't have to use art beads or Humblebeads for the weekly challenge, you can work in any jewelry medium or style.

Do I need a blog to participate? No, you can participate and share in the Facebook group.

Be sure to leave a comment each week if you are sharing your work only on the Facebook group so you can be entered in the challenge.

You don't have to follow along each week, this is mainly to get you inspired and connect with other creative jewelry designers.  

Mojo Challenge Facebook Group
Join the Facebook Group for insider tips, updates and to share your work!

 These are the weekly challenges, I have two bonus creativity challenges for week 11 & 12.

Feel free to grab this graphic for your blog posts or sidebar.

This challenge is a godsend. Been having (and still have, but at least I've got help now) a really bad time, so my jewelry making mojo has completely flown out of the window. I've made components here and there, but not finished a single piece since ... last september, I think. Though I'm typically bad at keeping up with challenges and blog hops, I at least want to give it a try. :)

Fun! I thought the same thing when you posted this. I had trouble printing this off before, but will try again. I will try to make this work! Enjoy the day. Erin

I've been wanting to build up a collection to sell in my Etsy shop and for the weekend trade sales this spring, this challenge is really inspiring! I'm super excited to be joining. I just started a new blog to catalog my experiences in jewelry making and I think this challenge will fill many "pages" for me to blog about! I've joined the facebook group, so that I'll have some wonderful company while doing this challenge! <3 <3 <3 Thank you so much for this challenge!

When I first read this post, I thought OMG, I do NOT need another challenge right now! But after I closed the page, I thought about it and I DO need this Mojo Challenge. I've been cooped up inside most all of the winter with my bad back discs and sometimes 6 little kids. My biggest challenge has been to teach the times tables. By gosh, I'm IN. It will get me motivated. Thanks!

Brilliant. I just came across this! I am seriously lacking inspiration so it's fab to have something get my mojo back! I'm off to join the Facebook group and I'm looking forward to the first challenge!!

Deb Fortin said...

what a great way to get my mojo back. it's gone missing since the Christmas craft shows were done. Just what i need to start this year off right, and meet like-minded artists at the same time and resurrect my poor blog.

Rebecca said...

Great advice Heather! I must read through these posts when I'm not about to head to my bed. Tomorrow!
