Inspiration can be a tricky fellow to find, especially when you try to look for it! However, there are a few tricks that you can use to help get your creative juices flowing.
Before getting out your tools and materials, pull out a few of your favorite books of photos. When I am working on a particular type of jewelry piece, let's say that my goal is to make a ring, and then I will try to look at photos of rings and bracelets. Lark Crafts 500 Series is an excellent reference to keep around, because each book is filled with at least 500 different pieces all of the same types of jewelry. 500 Bracelets is beautiful book and every time I flip through, I feel like I am always finding something new!
What if you have exhausted all the books in your library and still nothing seems to pull at your inspirational strings?
