Words I live by:


The last few days my running inner monologue has been, “Oh, well…let’s see what happens.”

 

I’m the first to admit that I don’t like following rules. But when I am trying to achieve a certain look with whatever I’m creating and it isn’t working…I will ask for help, refer to training manuals, go to those who know. And I will follow their advice which, very often, is an educated experience. Then I follow the rules.

 

Experimenting is one of my favorite things. And right now I’ve been experimenting a lot. I can’t just do the same thing again and again…even if everything I make is ‘one-of-a-kind, I do have certain designs I’ve developed and that I re-create, always switching things up a bit from pieces to piece.

 

I tend to keep an eye on trends and styles in the jewelry marketplace. I find it to be important to my creative process. BUT, I add this information to enhance my work, not to mimic a trend…but to apply it into my style.

 

So…and anyway, I’ve made a lot of earrings…and a few other things (big surprise, huh?)   Here they are:
