When inspiration is gone, do something else!

Like my last post said, I have been without inspiration for a while. I can't even get myself to really doodle anything, as my mind just keeps drawing a blank time and time again. I'm still hoping inspiration and ideas will flow back to me at some point. If not, I might go crazy haha.

But because I felt I had to do something with my time, I decided to try my hand at something a little different: jewellery!

I had been interested in making earrings for a while already, but never really gave it a shot, until now. And even though I'm not very good at it yet, and the things I do are very basic, I do enjoy it very much. It's something different and it helps to stop me worrying about the artist's block too much. Maybe in time and with more practice I can do a bit more with this jewellery making business, but for now it's mostly just for fun. =)

As you can see, nothing amazing, but I'm having fun making these. =)

Also, I forgot to mention this on here, but I opened up an Etsy store as well. I don't really expect to sell much/anything on there, but it's always worth a try no? If you're interested, you can visit my store here:


  1. Hey Ine,

    Fijn om te lezen dat je niet bij de pakken blijft zitten; soms doet het immers goed om even iets geheel anders te doen. Good luck ermee, je komt vast wel uit je artist's block. Misschien dat het beter gaat eenmaal september daar is en het leef- en/of werkritme een iets stabielere vorm aanneemt.
    Als die oorbellen met zilveren bol en onderaan drie staafjes ooit op je etsyshop te staan komen, ben ik de eerste om 'm te kopen ;). A demain!

  2. Alle oorbellen (buiten de blauwe) staan op Etsy. Hopelijk kan ik er binnenkort nog wat maken. =)

    En tot morgen! =D

  3. Mag ik ze van jou persoonlijk kopen (ipv via Etsy)? :)
