It’s no secret I’ve been in a creative slump and it’s been depressing. I’ve been trying to force myself to create and I think it’s obvious that never works. But something happened in the studio last week to get me going again and it’s been exciting. As I mentioned before, Steve and Sarah were encouraging me to create something for myself and stop worrying about resale. I took their advice and created these last week:
It’s a little hard to see in this horrible picture (I really must cut back on the coffee), but the bottom piece arcs out creating a lovely piece from both the front and side views. I’ve worn them almost every day . They go with everything, are large enough to be a statement, and are comfortable to wear. Inspired, I began playing with the design and created these:
It’s a little hard to tell in the photo, but they do not lay flat. The middle section is angled. These aren’t quite as long as the first ones. I think these measure about 1.5″ and the other ones are close to 2.5″. Today I finished these and I think they might be my favorite so far:
Again, the bottom piece arcs towards the front and creates a nice silhouette. I’m working on a couple more ideas and will post them as soon as they’re done. In the meantime, I have to figure out how much I’m going to charge for these babies. Look for their debut at WinterFest.
