What Is Ring-a-Day

What Is Ring-a-Day

Ring-a-Day #133 5/18/2010 “Fallen Leaf”

On January 1st 2010, jewelry designer Nina Dinoff initiated a challenge, according to which participants were to make one ring each day for one year. The rings could be made out of anything, there’s no restriction regarding the materials and not all of them have to be wearable.

So that gives us plenty of freedom and makes it a perfect creativity exercise!

Several designer around the world joined this challenge. The flickr group, where all the rings are posted, has now over 350 member. More than 11.600 rings have already been uploaded.

I couldn’t miss all this fun…...So on January 6th I decided to join the group and have been making all sorts of crazy rings ever since!

Just a few examples of my contribution to this challenge so far:

The Indecision Ring, as it was named by my dear friend Evelyn Markasky:

Since we have almost half a year ahead of us to complete the project, I’ll be posting weekly round-ups of the rings that I’m making, along with highlights from the work of fellow artists.

If you want to see all the rings that I’ve made so far, here’s the link to my Ring-a-Day Flickr Set.

......All the amazing creative rings of this group can be found at the Ring-a-Day Flickr Pool.

Enjoy them!

Thanks for reading!
