As artists we tend to find inspiration everywhere. It can
be the smallest things that heavily inspire us to dream, share
and create. Many times our adventures in travel can bring
forth new ideas and organic inspirations that we can apply to new
designs and techniques. I recently had the opportunity to
take a vacation- a much needed one. After a cold and bitter
winter; all work and no play- it was time to pack the bags
and head south to Jamaica. I visited this same spot 19
years ago and I found it to be full of inspiration for new
jewelry designs. It inspired many of the textures used in
my first jewelry collection that sold nationwide. The
details in the coral cliffs inspired me then and continue to
inspire me now.
Jamaica offers plenty of things to do or just a place to
park it for some much needed rest and relaxation. My Jamaican
holiday has included yoga practices, beach walks, breakfasts with
a view and of course just some time to breath and find
inspiration in all directions. This was my view from
breakfast most mornings from the RockHouse
Hotel. What's not to love- and to be inspired by.
I love playing with texture in my jewelry designs and here is one of my newest visual inspirations. All those amazing textures that were created by nature. Again, it can be the simplest of things that inspire the eye and mind of an artist. Can't wait to try and translate these into new jewelry designs.
Here are a couple of short videos that I captured while in Jamaica. The sound isn't great, but the images say enough. Enjoy!
