How to Take Art with You Everywhere

Do You Need Art Like I Do?

I’m sure you’ve heard artists say that they need to create. It’s a compulsion. I’m one of those artists. But I also need art around me, whether I’m creating or not.

I know this is going to sound weird, but having art all around me makes me feel like I’m in a warm, safe, cocoon.

These little guys sit atop the cabinets in my studio, and watch over me.

I’ve been known to carry artist-made glass beads, in my pocket. If I’m in a place where I can’t take them out to enjoy looking at them, just a quick fondle in my hoodie pocket soothes me.

The dilemma came in when I would wear things without pockets. Then what? Easy solution: only wear things with pockets, right?

 

I Found a Better Solution: Jewelry

I was never a jewelry-wearing person. I mean, I like a sparkly thing as much as the next gal, but traditional gems and metal don’t do it for me. 

I don’t know why it’s taken me so long but I finally realized that I could make any kind of jewelry I wanted. Well, duh. Isn’t that what an artist does?

I didn’t have to make what I thought people wanted to wear. I could make art. Art to wear. I feel silly admitting that because it’s so obvious, isn’t it?

So that’s what I’m doing. I’m creating art that you can wear, so that you always have inspiration right there with you.

  1. Oh – I thought I was the only one that would pop a bead into my pocket to sooth me during the day. A guilty pleasure that was my secret fun.
