My Pink Glam Earrings were featured in an article by Jennifer Garry titled “How to Create Your Own Wedding Inspiration Board.” The idea of using a theme and associating colors and textures to design around is applicable beyond weddings and bridal showers. It is an oft used tool by artists when painting, designing jewelry, etc., though admittedly sometimes more informally.

A String of Expression: Techniques For Transforming Art And Life Into Jewelry by June Roman is an excellent book available on Amazon.com about using collage as inspiration for jewelry design. Try using a similar method the next time you stumble upon your own artist’s block.
