Two weeks, 50 more to go and a terrible cisis

I can't believe how the Ring a Day project has taken off! So many people have thanked me for getting them involved in this and so many other people have commented on how much they are enjoying seeing all the submissions. The rings range from the highly conceptual to perfectly executed fine jewelry. All of those seem incredibly inspired and I just hope we can keep it going for the rest of the year.

In the midst of all this creative energy and fun, our world has experienced one of it's greatest tragedies due to the earthqauke in Haiti. I am very proud to say that many of our members are going to be donating rings that will be available for auction to raise money to help Haiti out in this incredible time of need. We have Thomasin Durgin and this ring she made as an homage to the people of Haiti. She has gathered about 20 rings thus far and will be auctioning them off in the near future. Stay tuned to her blog (and this one) for the auction information and the name of the charity the money will be donated to. It will definitely be donated to a charity that gives the money directly to Haiti.

Thomasin Durgin, 1/13/10 "Ring for Haiti"

There are so many incredible rings it is hard for me to choose, but here are a few of my favorites from the last week.
