March 2016 Inspiration for the Honey Do List

Welcome to March!  I don't know how you're feeling, but this new year is already flying by for me!  This year, my husband Eric has decided to issue me a design challenge each month to get me out of my comfort zone and to help clear out my bead stash... we're calling it the Honey Do List.

Eric and I were so inspired by the response to last month's Honey Do List challenge that we decided to do a blog post to announce the inspiration for the March challenge in hopes of getting folks excited about playing along!  Once again, Eric has offered up some of his photography as a jumping off place.

Without further ado, here are his photos and what he has to say about this month's challenge:

Something I've discovered as I take more pictures is that some are all about the colors, while others are about structure or shadow and light.  As I watched Sarajo creating colorful jewelry with glass, crystals, stones, and textiles, I decided to make this month a little more challenging.  This month I want you to create a piece in black and white (including shades of grey)!  Feel free to take inspiration from the photos, or ignore them completely and just work with monochrome.  Good luck!  

The reveal date will be Monday, March 21.  To make it super easy for you to participate and share your blog links, I'll set up an Inlinkz link up so folks can add their blogs as they are ready.  Just stop by my blog on March 21st and join the fun!  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 sjdesignsjewelry@gmail.com  The more the merrier, so I hope you'll play along with me this month!
