Oh yes! It's time for the Etsymetal Blog Carnival. This month we're blogging about our creative process and our work spaces - I can't wait to see what my fellow jewellers have on their workbenches, are they neat and tidy or is there a weeks worth of dirty coffee cups?
I confess, I'm a sketchbook junkie and most of my designs are visually led. When I start a new design I always start with my heaps of magazines, books and postcards. I have a small moleskin in my handbag to record anything that catches my eye in a museum or gallery, and one by my bed for late night inspirations.
Then there's the one I work up my designs in, pictured here are my drawings for the etsymetal charm swap.
Oh, and I have my "Recipe Book" with a drawing and cutting list and notes on any design I need to reproduce frequently.
