Inspiration

Posted on March 01 2013

Two things I love in life are treasure hunting and making things. Recently I've been overindulging in both. I can't stop designing, which is a great problem to have unless you're my family and actually want to spend time with me. Inspiration seems to be everywhere - my walks at the lake near my house and my recent trip to the Tucson Gem Show. Tucson was a scavenging and buying trip. The sheer amount of raw materials at every price, exhibited from the Convention Center to shabby motel rooms was overwhelming. It was my idea of heaven. The challenge is to transform that "heaven" into jewelry.
