My inspiration is always intertwined with nature and her delightful beauty that changes every season. I've been struggling so hard with this jewelry line. It's a beautiful blessing and a thorn in my side sometimes. It's been a gift that's taken a lot from me mentally, spiritually, creatively, and even walked with me thru some dark storms which always makes me wonder if it's worth pursuing. What am I doing this for? There are so many others that do this and do it far better than I ever imagine... Then I hear that voice that says "who cares, push thru and don't quit" I look around and see my plants colors changing and the weather becoming like able again and seeing mountains and their magnificent colors and curves and I saw so many colors I haven't yet tried and stones I haven't played with yet and designs I haven't birthed out yet and then I'm back at it, thru the sluggish seasons and the prosperous seasons and the slow and way too fast paced and I evolve and my new passions and discoveries are opportunities to create and create what I love seeing so I can surround myself with this. Surround yourself with your gifts and don't give up, each one is developed different than your others gifts. Take up new passions to create something new, something beautiful, something only you can do. Maybe success sometimes is that you just don't quit.
