The Creative Process

“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” 

 -Maya Angelou


It isn't often that I get to tinker and play around with new ideas at my work-bench. My days are usually full of making jewelry for orders and working online. However, as a creative, I NEED this time. Of course there is always something else of pressing matter that is going to need to be done. That's part of the business. But creating is equally important and sort of the whole point! :) It also leaves me refreshed and energized so I can tackle those other important, pressing matters.

Last night, I decided that I wanted to make something new. I had an idea of a design in my head but when I started working, other ideas started coming to mind. I tinkered around with a couple of concepts and then one idea sparked another and VOILA-this necklace was born!

Maya was certainly right about that creativity thing! :) Now I have a few more ideas for new designs!

Now it's time to get back to that other important stuff ;) I have a show this weekend and I have several earrings to make.

Go make something ! :)
