Announcing the Ring a Month Theme for May 2019

I've loved seeing all the nature-inspired rings from April but it's time to announce the ring a month theme for May.


How do I join in?

Everyone is welcome using any material or jewellery making discipline, whatever your level of experience, wherever you are in the world!

You are welcome to join in on both! This is a very supportive community so please do like and comment on people’s work.


So here it is, The theme for May is mixed.





But what does this mean?! It means using two or more materials to make your ring. Some ideas to get you thinking are below but the design is up to you.

  • gemstone/s

  • a different metal e.g. gold

  • resin

  • glass

  • enamel

  • acrylic

  • beads

  • wire

  • cold connections and riveting (that way you can add anything!)

I do challenge you to try and use a material you don't normally use.


Alternatively, if you aren't inspired by this theme, make a ring of your own design. The challenge is to make a ring a month, the theme is optional. But please only share a ring made in May, rings made previously don’t count!

I look forward to seeing what you make!
