I have so many things to show you today!
It’s been quite the productive week in my studio.
It’s so much fun to share these drafts with you as I work on a small jewelry collection for 2011.
Most of the products I share with you here on creative Thursday are just bursts of creativity that occur.
I do make sketches when I design, but mostly I just give it a go with some fabric or materials I like.
I don’t edit.
I just go for it as see what it becomes, and then I’m one step closer to a design I will settle for later, and use in my collection.
But it’s all very fun, to just let go and not think about anything, no agenda other than creating.
Many of you probably have very different approaches when you create things, but this works for me.
Later in the process though, it all becomes more thought out and planned, as you’ve made all these drafts to edit from, to improve and to refine.
Here’s this weeks Creative Thursday!
This canvas ring and bracelet came about while wanting to travel again.
It’s a bug I cant seem to rid myself of.
I absolutely love the buzz at airports, well… I dont like them all.
They need to have a fun crowd and great design.
Denver for instance, yeah it’s not on the list of airports I want to hang out in…. Sorry Denver…
When I was a little girl I used to look at envy on my dads suitcases with the airport tags on them, and in the beginning I used to collect my very first ones.
This bracelet incorporated two cities I love to shop and meander in.
NYC, New York city.
This is a belt!
No, a necklace!
Or, a bracelet?
This came about as I tried to make a thin hand crochet belt for a sweet dress, but then I ended up using it to belt up some cute skinny-jeans I had.
Then I couldn’t decide, because as I took it off and wrapped it around my neck, it became this great nonchalant necklaces that worked so well with my white shirt.
After a day out with it around my neck though, I came home and wrapped it around my wrist for a perfect bold statement piece.
So, this is whatever you want it to be;)
My beloved mother, does not believe in emails, which is a thing I love about her.
Since I was a little girl she has handwritten letters to be everywhere I’ve lived in the world.
Which I collect in a box to create a book of one day.
So, as I had the canvas out, I thought I’d make her a letter/book.
The inside is filled with love and polaroids of my life here in San Francisco.
What are you making these days?
Would love to hear about your creative outlets!
