Creating on the Road

I have been traveling for nearly three weeks and trying to create jewelry on the road.  On the plus side, new sights and a change of scenery, which is excellent for getting the creative juices flowing.  On the minus side, you never have all you need to finish your jewelry (unless of course, you bring your whole studio with you).  I just finished a piece I will name "New England Nights"  It was created in this tiny cabin near Butternut Mountain in the Berkshires.  The cabin is rustic and mostly I worked at night on a picnic table with rough wooden legs.  I carry my portable Ott Lamp everywhere, so I had enough light.  Since I spread out on the picnic table, my family had to eat at the counter every night.  They are used to me spreading out. As soon as I am home, I will upload the picture of my new piece and share with other creative types.
