|Copper Cross Ancient Relic Ring by York Avenue Studio|
One of my sketches, looked nice so I made the design with Copper metal clay to get a better idea of the size of the Trident. When it was finished, it looked much more like a cross and the Trident wasn't "there" unless I knew to look for it. That is how the Copper Cross ring was created!
This picture shows a glint of gold on the floor coming from in between my office desk and a cabinet. It caught my eye and I saw it as a Gold Trident Ring. I drew a sketch of what I thought it looked like, then went to investigate what it really was. The bottom left sketch shows a Trident that is facing up, more like a crown. That's how I saw it.
One more example of how it may not be what it looks like........
Hope you can see that inspiration comes from all over, and it's fun when our eyes "see" something as if searching and seeking for it.
