design choices

Follow your own intuition and make it your own style

As a jewelry artist I sometimes struggle with trying to identify with one particular style as my own. When I create and design it is based most often on inspiration I received visually from color materials or even just being in the moment. I must say that my workshop is full of things that I find inspirational and at some point will find a purpose in one of my creations. I think that a lot of the designs I make and materials I enjoy working with give my pieces a certain native american or tribal style. Sometimes I make things that have a native style using nontraditional materials. If I have to come up with a term to describe my jewelry style I think it would have to be "eclectic" because I do not feel the need to confine my style or what I make to one particular thing.
