Eric's two biggest interests are beer and photography (you can see what he's up to over on his blog HERE). He's given us photography challenges twice now... so this month it's time to bring beer into the mix! Sound crazy to you? Read on and see what I mean!
Here's what Eric has to say about this month's challenge and some examples to get your creative juices going:
This month we're doing the Beer Challenge! I'm a huge fan of craft beer and the recent boom of great beers has led to a lot of fantastic label art. Your challenge (should you choose to accept it) is to take label art as an inspiration for jewelry. I've posted a couple of examples of cool bottle art as well as corresponding art beads. You can use these particular examples or use your own beer, wine, or even soda labels as a starting point. Good luck!

I hope that this unique challenge sparks your interest and you play along with me this month! You may be taking a look at beverage containers in a whole new light!
The reveal date will be Monday, April 25th. To make it super easy for you to participate and share your creations, I'll set up an Inlinkz link up so folks can add their blogs as they are ready. Just stop by my blog on April 25th and join the fun! I'll leave the link up open for a while... so you have plenty of time to add your links. (Last month's is still open... check it out HERE.) No blog? No worries! Feel free to send me a picture of your creation and some brief comments and I'll happily share in my blog post. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org The more the merrier, so I hope you'll play along with me this month!
