Sterling silver, cubic zirconia, pearl. Ring 204/365.
Mike Stromberg of Mike and Mary Jewelry has done some calculating for the Ring a Day project, and to date:
the number of participants who have produced rings = 118
the total number of rings produced = 7512 (give or take 100)
Wow – and we’ve got 5 more months to go!
I’ve done some tallying myself, and out of 118 people, only 17 have made more than 170 rings. Yesterday was the 205th day of the year, of the 17 only 4 people are right on target, and just 5 of us are within 6 rings of the goal. Some of my numbers may be off by one or two, and I might have missed someone as I looked at what was posted in the group pool recently.

I’ve been thinking about my commitment to RAD, and my personal goal has always been to make one ring per day. I’ve been skipping some days lately and making them up, plus I need to catch up by 2 rings and stay caught up. So I’m recommitting to one ring each day, even if it’s made out of paper and sucks (lets hope it doesn’t come to that).
The big question is, can I maintain that level of discipline again and not become obsessed as I was a few months ago? I sorta doubt it.
