I gain inspiration from so many different things. It may be a sign in a store, graffiti, a television show who knows. I am always on the hunt for something meaningful, funny or just speaks to me. I read a quote the other day that felt so poignant for a lot of things this business has been going through. It reads:
"And it's amazing how much noise people ignoring each other can make." I am not sure this works for a pendant but it says so much. For me I often tend to not say how I feel and this comes out so loud and clear even though I try so hard to be so silent.
Most pieces I make have to do with how I am feeling at the time. It is funny because if I am happy they are lovely and funny and chipper. If I am annoyed or frustrated that directly is reflected in my work. The pendant that says "do what is right, not what is easy." was a direct reflection on some work I had done on our new space. Nothing annoys me more than someone doing something half assed and expecting full payment.
"I don't even like people I like" wasn't actually one I thought of but it was for a friend who posted a picture of the quote and I thought about how well that works for some people.
Do you have a favorite quote? Where did you hear or see it? Where do you gain inspiration from?
Some new pieces I have been working on are:
