In holding with my 2010 goal of trying to "focus" I am spending my time working on my jewelry design line. This is a peek of Moonlight Snow.
I purchased three of the focal lampwork beads while on a recent trip to Italy. I met with the artisan and then purchased these beads with no plan in mind other than to design and make jewelry.
When I get an idea I usually sketch it on paper. Then I get out my supplies and see what I have that works with what my mind sees. I lay out the design to see if it looks in reality as good as it looked in my mind and better than in my sketch. Then I usually let it rest for a few days while I try different beads or placements or focal pieces. I like to adjust everything before I string it.
What are your successes for making jewelry? I would love to hear your best ideas of what works for you.
I have lots of ideas and more beads to string so I will continue to make my Adorn Me! jewelry.
I love reading about your creative process. This is a beautiful piece. Thank you for reminding me about my "ta da" list. I had completely forgotten it!! I have to write one today!!! It's long overdue!! ... and Avery is great. She was just at my house for a visit. I'll have to post an update about her as well!!!ReplyDelete
