Seven Moons Pendant on the Cover of ACS Quarterly!

My Seven Moons Silver Pendant is a pure silver collage created with metal clay (PMC) that was inspired by the feminine energy of the Moon and also by the concept that the Moon reflects the light of the Sun in the same manner that our mind reflects the light of pure consciousness. I chose the number Seven because it is a very mystical number with many connotations and deep symbolism used by many esoteric schools.

The Dream: New Pure Silver Pendant

This design was inspired by a song I wrote many years ago called A Dream Within a Dream, which referred to the yogic philosophical view that the external world is not real, just an illusion, and that the only true reality is the self, and also with the incredibly versatile nature of dreams, where desires, fears, experiences and people get mixed up and re-created to fulfill a subconscious purpose.

Where Does Inspiration Come From?

If you ever feel like your inspiration took a vacation, just give yourself a break and go to a good concert, talk about the stuff that you like with a friend or other creative types, visit a bookstore, and check out other artists and designers to get re-inspired to find your own voice and style. Finding your own expression can be a challenge sometimes, but you have to remember that everything in life is a process and give yourself the necessary mental fuel to feed the creative flame!
