One of These Things is Not Like the Other

One of These Things is Not Like the Other

Yes, I realize that my shop boasts inspirations from architectural landmarks across the globe, and for most of my jewelry collection this is true. However, for the Clochán necklace, this is a bit of a stretch to say the least.   The inspiration, Giant's Causeway, has been declared a Northern Ireland national nature reserve, a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and is one of seven natural wonders of the United Kingdom (thanks Wikipedia!). To be fair, I started designing this jewelry piece when the whole notion of starting a business was just a hazy idea tucked back somewhere in my conscience. Once I...

Frank Lloyd Wright is the architect of the building. This was his final great...

Let's get this thing going!

Let's get this thing going!

I recently had the opportunity to submit a proposal for one of my pieces to be carried in the very building that inspired it (hopefully more to follow on that topic, fingers crossed!), and one of the questions among many was: "What inspired you to become an artist/business owner?"   I thought this topic would be a good jumping off point for my first blog post. Before sharing my response, here's a quick blurb about getting to the point where I could actually answer this question. For better or worse, I often find myself doing things on a whim. I come up...
