Inspiration from Vintage styles.
With all jewelry techniques, sometimes you have to play around with whatever material is in hand before you can come up with an idea. I’ve always found that when I feel creatively block that just being near supplies and looking at what I have can start the ideas flowing. I’ve witnessed with Shelly that she picks up a piece of Sculpey and works it over and over again until something comes to her. So if ever you find yourself caught under the trap of a creative block, for everyone gets them, why not simply try holding, sculpting or looking at pieces without trying to make anything out of it. Sometimes the repetition can be curing.
