Finding inspiration in things that surround you is always a fun project to do when you are in need for a bust of creativity. Today a piled up a bunch of things that I have been collecting to use in some new creations. It is so fun to work with things that have been originally created by someone else's hands years ago. Like the hand painted portrait pin from France and the hand carved meerschaum pieces.
I find that sometimes when I photograph items before I start working with them it helps to show me the piece in a different way and helps me to know how to use it.
