2016 Polymer Clay Challenge
I challenged myself to make a vessel each week. You can find more details about this project on my Art Vessel page.
2015 Polymer Clay Challenge
This is a challenge from Katie Oskin of Kater’s Acres to start and finish one project a week for a year. I have decided to make beading components every week – see my dedicated page for details.
Art Bead Scene Monthly Challenge
Using a given piece of inspiration art on the Art Bead Scene Blog, create something utilizing at least one art bead in a creative way. I have created a separate page for my entries to this challenge.
Art Charm Exchange
The Art Charm Exchange is organised by Jen Cameron. The way it works is that you send in 11 charms, and get back 10 art charms from different artists (one of them is your own). The 11th charm goes towards an auction to benefit Beads of Courage.
2016 – Fairytale
I made charms inspired by the Frog Prince fairytale for this swap. You can see the charms I made here.
2014 – Soar
For 2014 the theme was “Soar”. The charm I made featured a phoenix feather. Have a look at the charms I received.
Art Jewelry Elements
Members of the Art Jewelry Elements team send out a component of the month (including lucky guest winners) to use in a creation.

Bead Soup Blog Party
In this challenge you are paired up with a partner who sends a mystery set of beads including a clasp and a focal. On a set date everyone reveals their creations using these beads for a blog hop party. See the full description of the Bead Soup Blog Party.

Pay it Forward
I’ll make a surprise gift for 3 people who comment and they in turn each make gifts for 3 new people. Currently there are 2 places up for grabs. See the gift I’ve already sent.
This challenge is to use Google Streetview to find reference images for a drawing or painting. I have a separate page for the paintings I have done.
I’m taking part in the Virtual Retreat Experience which is a year long event and includes lessons from 22 great polymer clay Artists. I have created a page to chart my progress. And it’s not too late for you to join in too :).
