Last night, I was hit hard with inspiration for these little guys. Source of inspiration is honestly one of the most mysterious things to me. For weeks now I’ve been constantly telling myself to get moving on making more jewelry…expanding from rings towards necklaces, brooches, hair accessories…but they’ve just been thoughts, no actual production. Then last night when I got home tired from a 12-hour work day, I was overcome with one of my occasional overwhelmingly strong streams of ideas. It’s like my hands and brain are creating way ahead of where my mind is…I don’t have a thought as to what I’m doing or where I’m going…I’m just watching it happen. Nevertheless, I’m pleased with the outcome. To-be hairpins made of the dot-painted disks and twirled shells shown and round brooches also pictured below.
