Etsymetal Blog Carnival: Non-Metal/Jewelry Creativity

 
Tell us about other kinds of art and craft you do. What other media do you work and play with? How often do you get to create? Does it relate to or inspire your metalworking?

I love to watercolor and do pen and inks. I mostly like to do floral designs. I am very inspired by Georgia O'Keefe and her bold beautiful flowers. I also like to draw with prismacolors and paint with acrylics. However, I haven't been able to make the time to do any of this lately. I would love to get back to it very soon. I do crafts with my daughter a lot. We make cards together and draw. I recently got out my prismacolors and hope to make time to draw a little with them.
Sometimes I create my jewelry designs from my drawings and watercolors. The picture of the flower(above) I adapted into the silver piece below. I really would like to make more time to watercolor and then see if any pieces evolve into  new designs. Most of the time I create a piece from a pencil drawing with the piece in mind, but I really like to be free to create a painting without the expectation of it becoming a piece of Jewelry.

Thanks for looking! 
Kathryn
