Jamaica | Q's Travel & Inspiration

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.

A beautiful view from my breakfast table this morning at the Rock House Hotel Negril, Jamaica.

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.

Beautiful textures found in the coral at Negril, Jamaica.

Here are a couple of short videos that I captured while in Jamaica.  The sound isn't great, but the images say enough.  Enjoy!
