When I sit down to design a piece of jewelry I never know how it will look until it is finished. I may have an idea of what I'd like to do, but that usually changes during the process. Inspiration comes from everywhere. Sometimes just having many beads lying around on the table together will lend itself to creativity, ideas I would not have thought of if the beads were not just scattered here and there. Color combinations are also created by having a 'mess' of beads scattered all over my bead boards.

The same concept applies to the design of my pillows and purses. The juxtaposition of fabrics lying next to each inspires the creation and design of my pieces. I never know what a purse or pillow will look like until it is completely finished.

My frequent travels in the U.S. and Europe give me new ideas for creating jewelry and purses. I acquire most of my fabrics in my travels as well.
