Sometimes people ask me where I find inspiration to design and create all the different kinds of jewelry that I make. Well, it's not difficult to answer that question. Living in SoCal creates in itself the best source of inspiration of all. Natures dramatic sceneries in California never cease to amaze me with its contrasts and colors. I just have to step outside my front door to feel overwhelmed with happiness and gratitude that I am blessed to actually live here!
The fact that it's green all year around and that the sun never ceases to shine (or hardly never) is a source of energy that is indescribable. I also find inspiration in the small things and events in my everyday life - a smile from someone passing by, walking my dogs and rewarding myself with a cup of coffee when coming home or just the simple fact that it's Friday can inspire a happy and colorful design.
Friday inspiration is in fact the best and today I got inspired by all the Jasmine bushes that are blooming right now in LA. It's my favorite season here when I can smell the rich and lovely scent of Jasmine everywhere.
