Control of the Muse!

Any one with any artistic tendancies will understand about having a "muse" ~ who or what they are is anyone's guess! One of the many meanings in the dictionary is Muse :-
  1. Greek Mythology Any of the nine daughters of Mnemosyne and Zeus, each of whom presided over a different art or science.
  2. muse
    1. A guiding spirit.
    2. A source of inspiration.
Mine once she gets an idea in her head leads me all over the place ~ at the moment after one of my wonderful customers and I talked over a commission got so excited I can hardly leave the colour scheme alone. I've made a couple of pieces to try and get it out of my system, to no avail!! So although the commission isn't due until February I have started it ~ sometimes there is no arguing with your muse ~ the last thing you want is for her to pack her bags and leave you with out the inspiration ;0)

Violetta is another piece totally led by my muse ~ the labradorite focal has in fact a generous amount of blue flash but sadly wouldn't perform for my camera!! With pink Amethyst, labradorite and fw pearls with rich purple amethyst and hung on a beautiful Coreana chain this really is a lovely elegant piece.
So tell me ~ have you got a muse ~ and where does she lead you??


  1. ah... not sure if I've already said this on flickr but I LIKE THESE!!! Obviously your muse is working so can I borrow her sometimes ya think??? hmmm???

    HUGS! I am so stalking my mailbox too... heehee.... gotta blog about it then!! bwahahahaahahahahah :D

  2. have you seen my muse anywhere? She's disappeared with my Motivation!!!

  3. Gorgeous work Jo!
