Inspiration can come from many different places for an artist. From our surroundings, from people watching and of course, other artists. I have to give thanks to all the artists I have met over the last several months who have opened themselves and their creative processes up to me. I am relatively new to the artist scene and I have definitely benefitted from the kind words and advice of others. I feel blessed to know you!
Maurice, from Michigan Bead Supply, is the artist who inspired me to design the ring above. Artists from all over town come by the shop to garner inspiration from Maurice. While there one afternoon, I asked him if they carry any beads with a center hole to make more rings. Maurice showed me several pieces, including these square crystals. I was not sure how the square would look at first, but I thought I would give it a try. I am so glad I did, because it looks amazing! I am thrilled with the result! I cannot wait to show it off this weekend at the Plymouth Art Fair, I think they will go fast!
Inspiration is an amazing state of being!!!
