It's just barely Monday, but my day is full tomorrow so wanted to make sure I got this inspiration contribution posted.
This is Kim. Her shop is www.KimforBeads.etsy.com ... she does lovely jewellry so take the time to go visit her shop.
Here is her contribution...
I am inspired by everything from Nature, to books, to family, colors, light, beads. I have been beading for over 18 years, I have an endless supply of ideas, and never enough time to make them all. Here is an example of something that inspired me. I had been reading to my 7yr old daughter a series of fairy stories, she was going thru that phase. When in the moment, I was thinking how I can make something with that feel, what would it be like. I ended up making a fabulous new design of jewelry. Instead of a fairy ring of mushrooms, I made a flower ring and used over one hundred little beaded flowers and made a necklace out of it. So this shows you that the simple task of reading to your child can inspire you. I have many moments in life like this, as I think anyone can be inspired by just about anything if they keep their mind open to it.
Here is the link to the piece of jewellry she created....
