Blog Carnival - What's Inspiring Me Now?

The topic of this month's Jewelry Artisans Community blog carnival is "What's Inspiring Me Now?"

Honestly, at the time the topic was decided, I was not inspired by anything and experiencing a dry spell.  Hate when that happens.

Not long after that, I was sorting through old books and came across a book about braiding hair that showed many different braiding techniques.  Flipping through the photos, I was inspired to try braiding wire and decided to give it a go.

I started with fine gauge wire and worked my way up thicker and thicker gauges as I got the hang of it.  Here is the end result and I'm quite happy with how it turned out:

Now my head is filled with ideas for other projects using braiding techniques all thanks to an old book about braiding hair.  It's true - you just never know where inspiration will be found or when it will strike!

There are so many hair braid styles, you could have some really cool results. I love how your cuff came out!
