Creative Journey

Today's feature "Glad Ragzz" so eloquently describes her creative journey. She is inspired visually by beautiful and artistic pieces and loves to try new things in her work. I can relate to the excitement of trying a new technique and using new materials.
Have fun visiting her shop and enjoy her feature!

I'm a visual person, and am inspired when I see something that I consider to be beautiful or artistic. I've always loved antiques and vintage clothing, so I also draw inspiration from the look and feel of old clothing and accessories. I find something very romantic, sentimental, and appealing about the fabric and abundant handwork that went into those lovely old gems. For a while I did a lot of needlepoint using the original Berlinwork charts, but now my work seems to be a combination of antique opulence and new materials.
Good examples are my winter handbags, crocheted with a variety of new, "high tech" sparkly yarns, and adorned with luscious vintage jewelry. Since moving to Florida, I've used a lot more color than I used to, and I love bright, happy reds and oranges. For summer, I like to use cool, crisp blues and whites, and try to weave "ocean" themes into my summer work whenever possible. Being someone who bores easily, I love to keep "moving" in my creative journey, always trying new looks, new materials, and never wanting to create the same piece twice. Unless I have a special request for duplicates, all my shop items are unique and one-of-a-kind.
