    Hi, Shea! I completely forgot to enter your previous giveaway so when I saw this one posted, I figured I’d better get on the stick! I’ve never owned fine silver, so I hope I win! 🙂 As for what inspires me, it depends – a flower, a song, an ocean. Mostly, though, I’m inspired by all the other talented artists out there, and by what we can make of a single bead.

    As I was walking my dog this morning, I kept seeing new patterns and colors all around me, so I would definitely say that nature inspires me!

  5. March 15, 2011 3:13 pm

    Forgot to add that I am already a follower, and I am now a FB fan as well!
    Love your work, and would love to use your findings in my beadwork!

    I am inspired by the beads themselves. Sometimes I will have an artist bead sitting on my table forever and then one day it will say (yes my beads talk) I want to be this and off I go in that direction.
    Great giveaway,
    Shannon C

    I’m inspired by colors. Specifically certain color combos whether they be in nature or a pleasant accidental discovery by spilling beads onto my table and two or more different colors falling together.

    My inspiration?? Comes from people like you…I am inspired everyday by following great jewelery blogs and seeing what everyone comes up with. I take snippets from everyone and try to use them in my work. The Bead Soup was just a phenominal source of inspiration for me.

    I would love the opportunity to win your findings, I am already set up on email because I don’t want to miss a single post of yours, I just found you and like you on FB and if you check out my blog you will see I posted you on there. Can you tell how much I want to win these findings?? ha, off to check out your etsy shop.

    Seriously, you do beautiful work.

    Thank you for a chance to win another round of your wonderful silver pieces. I am inspired by many things, especially colors. I am also inspired by the creativity of so many Artists. It really gets the thought processes going.

    I adore silver and would love to win.

    I am here via RSS feed, so I already subscribe.

    Thanks for the opportunities for Giveaways! This is my first visit to your blog. Your silver work is incredible and I would be very inspired if I had some to work with, yes, definitely. So I guess I’m saying that certain components inspire me, a fabulous focal, fun chain. Art pieces like pottery and paintings are great for color inspiration.

    What a lovely giveway — thanks for the opportunity to win these! I really like your silver components.

    What inspires me? Beads and components in themselves can be very inspirational, as can colours — i find inspiring colour palettes in everything from the trash can or candy wrappers to fine art and nature. I’m also often inspired by techniques, either learning new ones or experimenting with old ones asking myself “what if…”

    It’s always more fun for me to create something with supplies that I didn’t personally choose…a much more interesting challenge!

    I am inspired by colors and textures, mostly, although the most inspired pieces seem to come “out of nowhere”.

    I’m inspired by my friends, and the world around me. Anytime I bump into something new I file it away for future jewelry inspiration. 🙂

    Some days, everything can inspire me – some days, it feels like nothing can!

    inspiration is everywhere, even in things that i don’t like, because they inspire me to do something different. color is a big inspiration, in nature, in art, in the world around me. basically i guess life is my inspiration 🙂
