Creative energy flows through us like breath itself, some are more fine tuned to pick up its impressions and take it from ethereal form to a solid form. We share what we create therefore the energies flow from one to another and the process forms everything you see around us.
My best inspiration comes from visions that I put into form immediately, these seem to be some of my best creations.

I look at the same thing that you are looking at, yet we see something different. The scene is the same but still we come away with a different feeling, and different thoughts. This is why we have artist, they can take that same scene and capture it’s soul and present it to us. We both then see the same beauty, in that moment we are connected to it by the artists eye.
The saying "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder", is surely true, but it’s true essence is captured by the soul of the artist.
Hand a child a box of crayons and step back and watch their mind blossom in colors that they express on the paper. They are not afraid to mix colors, that a grown up would think would not match. They don’t stare at the crayons wondering what color to use next, they just pick it. The sun could be blue, the sky could be yellow, it doesn’t matter, its taking a peek into the creative imagination of a child. How wonderfully free to pour the colors onto a page and not worry if it is the correct choice, after all it’s your creation all choices are correct.

"It is the silence of our soul, that we pull our inspiration from. When we are at peace with ourselves, the energy flows, perhaps they are the whispers of the past or abstract visions to the future. This is when I create the pieces that I make, I do not design these pieces with my mind, but instead they come from the heart." LuLu Borealis March 6, 2008
I want to share more of my jewelry with you, I will be adding more and more pieces. I will also be adding creative works from my sister Lynda, who is truly an artist whose hands I can only call magical. Everything she touches, transforms magically into aesthetically form of art that possesses its own aura .
I want to share with you a bit of my creative side. I come from a very artistic family, both of my sisters possess their own special talents, although one seems to possess most. Her ability holds no limits, she paints, sculpts and also creates beautiful jewelry. ......................................................... I am inspired by so much around me, I love to make jewelry, and will post some of my original creations on this site. I look forward to hear what others think, I am self taught so many of the things that you see will not always be done the conventional way.
I also love to write, I am working on a book that I hope I can finish this year. I have put it to the side for now, I seem to go where the energy pulls me. Sometimes I too get caught up in the day to day responsibility and put my creative side on hold.
I hope others will find themselves inspired and share their creative side.
