This is the million dollar question…if I knew the answer to this I would bottle it, sell it, and subsequently spend my time lying on an exotic beach somewhere hot. Inspiration can come from many things, an object that has beautiful smooth lines, a beautiful sunset of exquisite colours or another artists creation.
My friends over at The Jewellery Artisans community find inspiration in many things and friends on my facebook page are always telling how they were inspired by a painting or a textile etc…. for me it is more of a random process really. I just have these little ideas that pop into my head and won’t go away until I have acted upon them.
Well that is not very exciting I hear you say….Oh how wrong you are.
Like the time my friend mentioned about having beaded make up brushes. So of course I thought Ooh I wonder if I could do that.
Then she said about having a beaded vase….sooooooo Yep I thought I could do that..!!
I think she is a dangerous friend to have…I hope she does not wear beaded underwear.. !!!
Don’t get me wrong I have plenty of ideas that are my own but I don’t want to give all my secret ramblings away in one go. I have just finished a beaded portrait of my son but that will be a post on its own at a later date. So as for where I find inspiration…easy….EVERYWHERE. x
