Not so productive in the studio today because there was other "duties" to deal with such as cleaning and laundry. But I was able to become inspired by a quick glance through Stringing magazine. This necklace was inspired by Cynthia Thornton. She uses kyanite and red stones in her design with a cute dragonfly link. I have the dragonfly link but it was a gift from a friend and I am keeping it for a special piece for myself. I used a Green Girl Studios GROW STRONG bead and oak leave charm. There is apatite, new jade, faceted prehnite, aquamarine, aventurine, smoky quartz, and czech glass in this necklace.
Yesterday, I found this cool cork board- square sections that you can stick up on the wall. So I put it in the studio. It's about 2 foot by 4 foot, with all of the sections lined up together. It's going to be the inspiration wall! But I forgot to get pushpins so the inspiration will have to go up another day. I figured that this would be easier than constantly flipping through my many magazines. This way, I can pull out my favorites and hang them - then switch them out. I also want to be able to hang all of my lovely business cards I've been collecting. And maybe some artwork too!
Well I better go list this necklace before I decide to keep it for myself.
