Inspiration in every stitch!

Inspiration in every stitch!

Ever wonder where artists get ideas for their jewelry or art? Me too! Here’s a little insight into my inspiration, which comes mainly from 4 things:  

My Grandmother:My love of stitching began with my grandmother, who taught me how to knit, sew, and ignited my passion for fabric and textile. The look of the stitch, the way it disappears and appears again, the contrast between line and solid shapes kinda makes my heart flutter. I think grandma would be proud!

My Grandmother, Lee Lee's knitting needles, sewing tools, and hand-sewn collar with pearls.

Nature:It’s the curve and form of a leaf and patterns of nature that inspire me most. The more imperfect, haphazard, and random it is, the more I’m inspired. Crazy, right?

A recent walk in the woods revealed an old piece of bark; gritty natural texture, organic, flowing pattern, a feast for my eyes, and the inspiration for my NEW collection.

My Pearl Collection, which incorporates line and asymmetry, is also inspired by nature and the drape; how it flows, curves, and falls. 

Textiles: Fabric excites me! The fluidity of lines, the way the material flows and overlaps is never perfect, making me love it even more. I curve my metal pieces to recreate the flowing fabric and to add dimension and layers.

Architecture:Buildings inspire my jewelry. Yes ma’am! The structural elements and lines are fascinating to me. My favorite building in New York (I call it the “Diamond” building) was my inspiration for my Sew Weave necklace and my Mix and Match Layered Earrings. Can you spot the similarities?

I could go on for days about my inspiration! 

Instead, how about joining me this Saturday, June 12th at 2:30 pm and/or 5:30 pm ET for my LAST virtual Art Party until the fall. I’ll be in my studio LIVE, where I’ll give you an insider tour and an in-depth view of my process. 

P.S. I don’t let just anyone inside my studio! You’re special to me, so I hope you’ll come! To attend the Art Party, click on the RSVP below.  If you would like to make a private appointment or see something special at the Art Party reply to this email and let me know.  Reply
