Brand new shiny pretty things

I have been so uninspired lately when it comes to jewellery making but I sat myself down and just started playing... more bracelets to come, I think.

And a keyring that could be a necklace that makes a nice gift for a man.
 This was the last key ring I made.

I've even been eying with interest the huge pristine still-wrapped canvas hiding behind the wardrobe... I'm thinking of blues and greens and spring and gardens... I wish my son was here to finger paint with... it's been a L O N G time since I felt like painting. I mean 2 1/2 years. Some of my paintings and photographs can be found here. The last painting I made was a gift for Ray's birthday when we first got together. A one metre birthday card. Does love suck the inspiration from you? Can't be that, surely... I have six blank canvases hidden in various places waiting and waiting...

What inspires you?


  1. Hello Barbara..

    Wow... i love the keyrings and your right, they would make a fab gift for a man...infact ide need 1 or 2 by 6th march, is it poss??
    hugs xx

  2. I wish we were neighbors so we could sit together, make jewelry, and talk about our babies all day long. xx

  3. You are so clever, Barb. I am so inspired by all of you creative types. I think I need to try harder!
    Just looked through all your art, too. Just gorgeous.
    I can tell from all of your pieces, you are such a warm and loving person, Barb.

  4. I find little inspiration these days Barb, not even to write. Another chapter in the book of grief perhaps? I don't know but lately all I want to do is sleep...Hugs

  5. love the bracelet, Barb, can't wait to see more!

  6. I love the bracelet too!
    I also have canvases hidden in various places throughout my house. The blank white is intimidating.

  7. That bracelet is really nice and the keyring idea is a good one! I really don't have much time for inspiration!!
