I have seen several comments about the little bird house I made a few weeks ago. I told the story how a friend of mine bought a little house necklace in Australia and that I loved it but couldn’t remember what it looked like. I made one for myself, see post here.
My friend that bought the necklace told me her name but as an artist I remembered the image and not the name. Her name is Jen Crossley, her work is very nice have a look. As I read her post about the necklace I saw that she got the idea from Catherine Witherall and credited her for the design. I think this is all part of being creative, as people we are inspired by others and their work. I was inspired by Jen Crossley and Jen by Catherine Witherall and so on. This reminds me of a couple of posts that other artists have recently written, Michael deMeng wrote on the subject here, and Diane Trout wrote about it here. I agree with them and hope if someone was inspired by the bird house necklace that I made they will try to make one for themselves.
