Simple inspiration: What's inspiring my artwork and jewelry

Do you ever just have to stop and snap a quick picture? Thank goodness for our phones these days. Inspiration lingers every where. Here's a few glimpses of colors, textures, and patterns that snagged my eye and heart this week:

Vibrant Orchid and Tangerine Style

It's officially spring! Here in Colorado, crocus and daffodils are blooming and tulips are on their way.  Just like the colors popping up from the seemingly lifeless earth, we need to bring a little freshness of color into our day too. Today I'm letting vibrant orchid and tangerine orange bring this outfit to life.

Vibrant orchid is the "color of the year" for 2014. What are your feelings on it? I think it's fresh, youthful and feminine. Hope your day is bright wherever you reside!  

Inspire Your Own Creative Buzz Today

There's something about being around certain objects, words, colors, and textures that peak my creativity. Do certain things do that for you too? Here are some things inspiring me today: 

Black and yellow are definite buzz colors for me today (and so says the bees). Yellow speaks of energy, excitement, and optimism. Black balances this with a grounded seriousness and sophistication. I hope whatever you're working on today, that you're surrounding yourself with positive and uplifting thoughts, objects, words, and community. 

Now let your creativity fly!

Sweet and Simple Studs

You've been looking for something that will make you feel beautiful and stylish every day. These are my favorite go-to piece of jewelry: these post earrings are simple enough to wear every day and unique enough to make you feel expressive and put-together. 

Most customers like to pick a few colors of earrings, having a variety to match how they want to feel. I've been gravitating towards the yellow, perhaps the steady falling of sun has me wishing for a little more sunshine. 

Which color(s) are you feeling now?
