picasso

i checked out a short interview with Paloma Picasso this morning. She spoke about working with Tiffany and her jewelry design. She said the thing she learned from her famous parents was to be your own judge of your work, and decide what you like.
sounds good to me...i also noticed the importance of having good photos...i can see how people will pay good money for their own professional portraits...they are immortalized...a documentation of their lives. during the interview they flashed these fabulous photos of her...in cool jewelry and in black and white no less!

Yay! My first post!

It is all new and all fabulous. This is what I am meant to be doing. This is what I love. I have embarked on the creative adventure of not only being an artist, but trying to make a living out of it! It is something that I have put on the back burner for years and the time is finally right for me to make it a reality. Great news! I look forward to the journey!
I am happy to introduce myself! I am a jewelry and accessories artist working with recycled materials. I find this material to be both challenging and rewarding at the same time! The result is unique and one-of-a-kind! Why do recycled? Why not? Being raised in low income family I was taught at an early age to find creative ways to use what I had and not only that, but to appreciate it! Now that I am older instead of trying to over compensate for what I didn't have growing up, I find myself still finding creative ways to use what has been discarded. It all just makes sense to me. I am thankful for my friends and family for their inspiration and support! I am grateful for past experiences which further serve to inspire my creativity and outlook. Onward and upward to all the fabulous new adventures and cheers to all!
