Inspiration...Everywhere I look!
I am often asked where my inspiration comes from for my jewellery designs. The easy answer is "all around me...in my daily life and travels"...and the harder or more truthful answer is to delve deeper into the easy answer!
For example, when I say..."all around me and in my daily life" what I mean is the vast beauty of our 50 acre property in the southeast hinterland of the Sunshine coast of Queensland. Stunning. Remarkable. Living with and amongst nature 24/7. Yes, this means snakes, but I share my home with so many other animals-birds, turtles, platypus, bush turkeys, large and small lizards, bats, kangaroos and wallabies and so much more. Not once in awhile, but every single day.
I also have the beauty of the trees, bush's plants and flowers. Changing daily and moment by moment. A flower that was closed tight in the morning, might be half open when I walk down for lunch and by late afternoon open in it's full glory. Inspirational?...you bet!
And then their is my traveling life. As a part of my jewellery business, Renee Blackwell Design I travel ALOT! I love and cherish this part of my life, meeting new people, seeing new places and simply taking it all in...
So here's a question to ponder today...Who or what inspires you...to make you a better person, to open your eyes and heart or just give a different outlook on life? I would love to hear from you...
