Inspiration Day

Margie and Me is just around the corner. So I thought I'd give you guys a little inspiration.
Now, normally, I don't advocate using other people's jewelry designs as inspiration for your own, There's just too much possibility of an overlap and a copyright could get nasty. However, I was really inspired by these so I thought I'd share!
In the greensy greens rainforest category:

A necklace by MaiAutumn.

A leather cuff by Julishland.(I'm currently infatuated with her work)

A chunky necklace by Shannon LeVart.

In the aqua category:
(Now, I realize that the proportions might be a little off, but go with me here...."aqua-blue-with-a-shot-of-pink" doesn't bring up a lot in the search results.)

A chunky statment piece by Decidela.

A cute little crochet piece by Ottupura.

A stunner of a bib necklace by Roselanijasmin.

In other news, I realized over the weekend that I am totally bored with the way I take pictures. So...I think I'm gonna try a few different things and see what works. Just change it up a bit.
I'm also feeling a sale coming on. There's a lot of work that has been sitting in my shop FOREVER and it needs a good home, (preferably not mine), so if you're thinking about getting something for someone for Valentine's, stay tuned, I'll let you know more details probably next Monday.
Enjoy your week!


  1. Nice choices. I do understand where you are coming from with getting inspiration from other peoples design. It's a matter of how you interpret what you see, I think. It would be quite interesting to see how you took anyone of these designs as a spring board for seed beads. I can't see how you could come up with anything that was not your own.

  2. Gorgeous inspiration, but your pieces are always so inspiring to me!

  3. Oooh, love these picks, Marcie...very inspiring!

    I can't wait to see your new photos (although I've always loved your photos anyway!) I'm beginning to realise how time consuming it is to present decent I'm trying to shoot better photos which means less editing time on the computer :-)
