Humblebeads Blog: Muffin Tin Challenge 2017
I asked my Humblebeads VIP Party Facebook group what their biggest challenge as a jewelry designer was for 2016.
Tops were finding time to create, feeling overwhelmed by their bead stash, too busy with family/work obligations, needing motivation and inspiration.
Well, hey guess what? I have a fun challenge if you fall into any of those categories – and honesty, who doesn’t!
I ran this challenge a few times and always heard back on how it helped with designers crank out a stack of jewelry. What better time than to start the new year with a bang! Join me for this fun challenge that will get you making new jewelry and using up some of your bead stash.
The challenge is simple:
Fill the cup of a muffin tin with everything you need for one project – so the focal bead, accents, chain, findings – whatever you would need to complete one project and put that in one cup. Repeat with the other cups. You now have 6-12 projects in a portable container ready for you to put together. Grab your pliers/tools and sit somewhere comfy with your muffin tin and put each piece together knowing all your choices have already been made – your mission is to simply arrange those beads in a sassy design and complete those projects as quickly as possible!
So let’s play!
Grab a muffin tin and put together 6-12 projects by January 15th (Midnight EST). This will be the perfect way to beat those post-holiday blues and jump start your New Year!
These projects can be UFOs. (Unfinished Objects if you have a pile of half-finished projects.) And yes, it can be as simple as 6 pairs of earrings if that is what you feel motivated to create.
Take a photo of your muffin tin and one photo of all finished projects (at least 6) – blog, facebook, Instagram or add it to a free album like Flickr and share the link/s on the Reveal blog post here on January 16th.
