Nature, a favorite work of art, a person you know or have read about?
I'm inspired by all of the above and more. I find that Antique Jewelry inspires me because each piece is unique. And from that aspect it inspires me to think how I will photograph and describe it for my website. When it is a piece for myself, I do like to imagine what clothes might be best to wear with that chosen piece.
Here are a few pieces that inspire me and yet they might surprise you. While I can always be inspired by a large Old European Cut Diamond and sparkling gemstones, I find that there are a lot of pieces that are truly inspiring beyond the sparkle.
|Circa 1940 Sterling Silver Handmade Mexican Bracelet. This inspires me by its dome shape in the link design.|
Silver bracelets like this remind me of the Southwest
|Mid-Twentieth Century Crucifix. This modern design made me think straight away of the many churches in the 1960's with their modern architecture and very mod, colorful stained glass windows|
|This Group of rings shows my favoritism for bold rings, color and above all, my love for all eras!|
