I talk a lot about inspiration on my blog, because I'm intrigued by how artists use inspiration.
When I create jewelry I am inspired by contemporary paintings, buildings, light fixtures, furniture, as well as geometric shapes, texture, and color.
I read a post by Cate on her Heart On My Sleeve blog about how laundry can be a source of inspiration.
Earlier this year Sharon from Knot-Cha-Chá! did a post about how a gray day inspired her to use the color gray.
What inspires you to create?
