Ring a Day Retrospective

The Ring a Day (RAD) project started January 2010 as an open creative challenge for metalsmiths and other artists to create a Ring a Day for an entire year. The rings could be made of anything and creativity was encouraged. Admission was open to anyone who wanted to take the creative challenge. Each artist was to create a ring each day, photograph it, and post it to the Flickr group. Over the course of the year 16,000 pictures were posted in the Ring a Day Group on Flickr.
The Ring a Day
project, initially proposed
by artist Nina Dinoff, was intended as a challenge to set a daily routine of
Throughout the year the artists created a supportive and encouraging environment where processes and new materials could be explored. All types of rings were created from ones that took 5 minutes to many hours.  It became a part of our daily routine as artists to think outside of the box and create a new ring each day.

Ring a Day was an amazing experience for the artists that participated and lifelong friendships were created. My journey through Ring a Day was inspiring and will always be cherished.
