Something I decided months ago, was that I needed NEEDED to have a bust to display
jewelry on. I bought a plastic form at the local flea market for $5! Can't beat that, but they can be found online for $7 new +shipping. Originally, the plan was to decoupage old sheet music, floral papers ...??? and use it as a necklace display for photos. That idea changed drastically when I saw a Pin (sorry, it came and went) that stuck in my head, of an artist's rendition of a goddess. She had a few strands of curly hair that looked as if they were snatched from a Saint Bernard, and a vintage vamp face with a lace tiara. I loved that crazy lady and had to try to re-create her for myself. For a very long time, I have had a Boho/gypsy muse who whispered to me that her name is "Shalimar," a mysterious name that might mean "abode of love" or ...something else. It is a contrived and decimated Hindi word that apparently would be described as slang in English. Shalimar dances around a fire of creativity. In the Chinese Five Elements, Fire represents passion ...having your heart in all you do. That is exactly what I want for my studio, and I am listening to my muse.
