Your challenge is to select a period from the timeline below (or I can choose one at random for you!), research it, and create something to reflect that period. I'm hoping you'll not only be inspired by the style of the period, but also the materials that would have been used.
How it works:
Choose one or more time periods. If you'd rather it be a surprise, I can choose a period for you. Remember, you only have to choose one!
Post a comment here or email me with your chosen time period. I'll put all the info together for an easy to use blog hop list, so we know where we're going!
Create at least one piece of jewelry for your period. You can make as many as you like, but one finished piece for each time period you choose is all that's required.
Reveal on Saturday, October 13th.
Hop the blogs - I know there are going to be some amazing creations, so enjoy the hop!
Info I need from you: your chosen time period and your blog address, if you're not commenting with a Blogger account. Otherwise it's hard to find you!
There are 14 time periods to choose from. Click on the names for a great site with descriptions, history, and photos for each time period.
Found one you liked? Email (click on my profile to contact me) or comment here with your choice(s) and that you'd like to participate. All you have to do from there is create and wait for the reveal day! I hope there's enough info in the links above, but if you need help finding any other resources, just ask!
Let's get creating!
