I don't think you can be a jewelry artist without a absolute fascination with nature. I remember the first time I saw a real piece of Georg Jensen jewelry...I came down with an instant case of jewelry lust!
The piece was a brooch in the shape of a wreath with embossed birds and semi-precious cabs, and I couldn't take my eyes off of it. I think I was about eight-years-old. To this day, I surf the glass cases in the Georg Jensen shop in NYC every chance I get.
I also haunt mineral shops, scientific curio and specimen stores, a stall at an annual fair where the guy sells preserved insects behind glass, the Herkimer diamond pits, shell shops, my backyard...anywhere I think I can find something to use or that will inspire me in my work. Nice life!! I just love it.
