If you ever want to really amp up the creativity in your art work ~ collaborate with someone! Not only is it more fun, but the ideas grow exponentially when you work together. I know when I sit down to create jewelry with a friend we're always critiquing and improving each other's work. The other day I asked my husband to bend some spoons for me to make into bracelets. He did a few and they turned out like this:
I love it! I'm so excited about these and I have a bunch of ideas for more!
So anyway, while he's out there bending spoons he thinks maybe I should make necklaces too. I hadn't thought of that, but told him I would certainly try it. And here's what happened:
I love this too! It turned out so much better than I expected ~ and without him I would not have even thought to try it. He's still out there bending spoons and has lots more ideas for me. The only downside to this collaboration is that I don't think I can keep up with him!!
Thank you Dusty ~ You Rock!!
