BAD & BAW 2013 Challenge Begins!
Hi! Happy New Year from EtsyMetal! We are posting to share our very first day of the new "brooch" challenge! EtsyMetal and creative Flickr artists around the world will be joining in on making Brooches daily and/or weekly for the entire year. This is a personal challenge for everyone and the only (soft) rule is to post the images on the day you make the brooch. Any materials, any technique, and anybody can join in!
The "BAD" group will make one brooch-a-day, and post them daily into the BAD Flickr group.
The "BAW" group will make one brooch-a-week, and post them weekly into the BAW Flickr group.
To celebrate "the Brooch" below are some of our EtsyMetal team members brooches from their own private collections (that they did not make.) Thank you ladies for sharing your personal pieces with us!
1. honey bee brooch, 2. brooch, 3. sterling brooch, 4. Margaux Lange Brooch, 5. ivy pod brooch, 6. Vintage Brooch
Ok so now for todays submissions, I felt for today we should celebrate all of the Flickr entries, but in future weeks we will not be able to post all the wonderful pieces that will be rushing in, but you will see the EtsyMetal team members BAW entries to be scheduled every Wednesday of the month, here. And you can still see all of them from Flickr group pages, handy links below :)
