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 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.

Many of my oil paintings follow that same course. I usually do not know what the painting is going to look like until I am finished.
