Inspiration is one of those very personal things. What one person finds inspiring may not do anything for someone else. Some people may find that their art is inspired by majestic views or paintings by masters. Others find that they need other sources for inspiration.
I belong to the second group. I look at a painting, a sunset on a pond, or a beautiful mountain and I appreciate them for themselves, but rarely do I feel inspired by something like this. My inspiration comes from learning new things and finding ways to incorporate those techniques into things I already do. Lately, I have been feeling uninspired to work on my torch so I decided to work on something completely different for me and so I found some directions to make this necklace.
I don’t typically make pieces like this so it was a real stretch for me. However, now that it is made, I am inspired to see what it would look like with some of my lampwork incorporated into the design. I will be hitting the torch soon and creating a new piece with my lampwork added to the design. Stay tuned to see what I come up with.
