What is Your Creative Process?

Inspiration is an important part of my creative process. I spend a lot of time looking through my design books, checking out inspiring boards on Pinterest, and planning out my ideas for the new pieces I create.

Sketching out my ideas as I process them is the most important part of planning a new collection. I draw out new ideas, and then I take a few minutes and draw out variations of my main idea.

This really helps me when it's time to create. I can page through my sketch book and start making the pieces that make sense. Usually only a few of my sketched ideas are turned in to pieces for my collection, and many times once I start creating the pieces turns out different from what I originally planned.

Viewing other inspiring jewelry pieces and sketching out my ideas is how I create most of the pieces in my jewelry collection, but I also like the spontaneity of going through my collection of hardware and putting pieces together randomly.

If I am creating from a sketched design or the spontaneity of digging through hardware, I love the act of creating and taking something simple and turning it into something great.

  1. How fun to see your creative process! Having all the hardware around must be so inspiring. I tend to just pick something from my stash to work with and wing it from there! Maybe that's because I can't draw. :)

  2. I cut stuff out of catalogs or browse through pinterest. When I'm working on a project, I often spend a ton of time thinking it over, even waking up in the middle of the night and thinking about it!

  3. I love Pinterest for inspiration! I use that a lot for writing inspiration.
    I hope to have the time soon to sit and create, that alone brings all kinds of excitement and inspiration.

  4. I have a book which I use to draw and put in the colours. I take it with me when I go bead shopping or when I have to make a purchase online for my supplies. I have my days when I have this surge of designs that just come out one after another, so I keep the book with me most times.

  5. I love making things that are simple too. It was fun to see your work space, and your creative process!! :)
