After working for a while, I began running out of ideas. So I turned to an odd place for inspiration...album covers. I love album art. It's part of the reason I was so reluctant to join the 21st century and download albums instead of buying CDs...I just like the pictures. So anyways, here are a few of my "inspired" pieces...
This one was inspired by the shirt Cara Dillon is wearing on the cover of her Hill of Thieves album.
I really liked the turquoise color of Julie Fowlis' album Mar a Tha Mo Chridhe so I started from there. The English translation of the title is "as my heart is" so I decided to add a crystal heart charm. It looked weird with just the pink heart so I incorporated a little more pink into the bracelet and I was surprisingly pleased with the results. I may end up keeping this one for myself.
Last but not least, the oh-so-inspirational Laughing Girl album by Jenna Reid. I named my blog after it. I named my store after it. Now, I have a bracelet inspired by it. The combination of orange and bright pink is a little odd, but I like it, and the black gives it an edgy look.
