    Having lost my job, like many others, I find a need this year to craft my gifts. I recently entered a craft show at the local elementary and made a few dollars, but not enough to cover the cost of my materials, as I have some of my stamped necklaces left to sell. My personal favorite is a military dog-tag shaped blank stamped “MY HERO WEARS COMBAT BOOTS” and has added charms of a small heart, a star, and a peace symbol. The necklace is a ball chain. I would love more findings to let myself be even more creative. I guess you could say that my biggest inspiration this year is need.

    I found I’m a steampunk kind of gal, so the trend in jewelry findings these days are great. There is so much that can be done with the mix and match of metals, design, etc. Your mind and creativeness is the only thing holding you back with all the great products out there like Nunn designs. Thanks

  1. what inspires the creations? the music in the christmas air? The excited feelings of shoppers and the twinkle of the lights on the christmas treee and houses? The decor and smiling faces! Plus whatever sparkly christmas cheer is bubbling inside of my mind!

    Looking outside my window during the changing seasons gives me inspiration. All the colors and the starkness of the tree branches. The sun reflecting on the snow 🙂 early this year. I love the colors showing in my designs.

    What inspires my gift giving creations this season are the different ages and personalities of the recipients. I am an avid machine knitter and jewelry maker. I combine the two crafts ( and several others like machine embroidery) by making the appropriate jewelry and embellishing my knits with beads and making all sorts of wild scarfs , sone thin ones that can sub for necklaces with the amazing embellishments that are now available.

    I love challenging myself between vintage, steampunk and organic. Working it out is the fun of it and the creative juices bring up some amazing pieces. Love it all!

    The arrival of fall inspires me to use copper with autumn color beads and leaf or acorn embellishments. Christmas lights encourage me to use jewel tone crystals. I would love to win this prize package! Thanks for the opportunity!

    Love the individually handcrafted beads, charms, and findings (e.g., Bali or hill tribe).

    • Kat
    • November 25, 2011

    My inspirations come from clothing, fabric swatches, photographs, and individual components that I find in various craft stores. I only wish I had more time in which to indulge myself in jewelry-making!

    Love your products! In 2008, won editor’s choice in a challenge in the Stringing mag.
    Your 9 hole spacer bars was in the design. I have been wanting to try new components .
    Your designs in metal has inspired me to try. I hope I win to get the chance.

    Beautiful items you are gifting. What inspires me this time of year is the green/red of holly and the sparkle of ice.

    • Karin Dronenburg
    • November 26, 2011

    Winter sunrises and sunsets are such a beautiful palette of colors to work with instead of the traditional holly berry and evergreen– but incorporating new/different pieces is truly exciting and inspiring at any time of the year. I would love to try the new Nunn pieces and see what they can do!!!

    • November 26, 2011

    I have been so busy this year, but what little time I had to work on projects, I love working with your products!

    I’m inspired by the need to reawaken my creativity, as it has been stifled for far too long!

    Lately, I find myself working with fabrics and metal components, incorporating them into mixed media pieces with bead embroidery. Pick me!!

  2. I have never worked with Nunn (yet). these items just make me want to make all sorts of fun stuff!

    The snow and ice that we are (so far) lacking here in MN!

  3. any jewlery maker would love this, i know i would and could use anything for my projects, need to finish some for Christmas, times running out.

    • jeanette
    • November 26, 2011

    Im playing with texture in my designs at the moment, with everyone starting to wrap up, im bringing that element of warmth in to my Jewellery, by using lots of different media, that feel great next to the skin, ‘feel the heat without all the clothes’

    • Faith
    • November 26, 2011

    I am inspire this year by memories of Christmases past. Taking old photos and using them in my pendants and charms

    • Laura De La Garza

    Fall inspires my jewelry designs. I love the different colors of leaves. Golds and browns take presidence this fall season for me.

    • Ellen Lesak
    • November 26, 2011

    My holiday design ideas? I love to use things like Pearl the white of snow, the green of fir & evergreen trees, the ruby red of cranberries, the jewel tones of Christmas lights, and the flash & color of package wrappings, even chandelier earrings like the frosty lace of snowflakes… all the elements of the season I love to use in my pieces this time of year, for presents & for myself!!

    Love antiques and the Nunn designs fit well with my love of creating vintage style jewelry. Lately have been inspired by a batch of vintage buttons I came across.

    What inspires me? Making things for the people I care about that they will enjoy wearing for a long time to come.

    • Alita
    • November 26, 2011

    I love to make jewelry! Each piece I design always finds an unique owner. Many times I give away jewlery that I am wearing and most of the time it is during this giving season. I don’t have a lot, but I know I have more then many others.

    • Robin Tapp
    • November 26, 2011

    Absolutely BEAUTIFUL pieces!!!!!

  4. Love Nunn Design! Used in a lot of my pieces on my website!

  5. When giving a gift that you made to someone else you are also giving a little piece of your heart

    • Melanie Higginson
    • November 26, 2011

    I’m inspired by the amazing colors and patterns I see all around me. It’s tricky finding beads that match the morning glory that grows by the porch, or connectors that look like bits of architecture, but when I do it’s fun to see the design I pictured finally come together.

    • Sherrie Alleman

    The beautiful colors of nature inspire me the most. Walking along a beach with the beautiful colors of the sky, the water, the sand, and even the people are inspiring, for example. A stormy day brings the deep colors of grays, blacks, greens, and whites. Wrap them up with some sweet silver and you have an artistic stormy piece made in no time.

    I need inspiration to get back my creative juices. Been “walking with death” for a couple of years now…need life affirmed.

    • November 26, 2011

    beautiful pieces make beautiful jewelry!

    • Tina Rivera
    • November 26, 2011

    They are beautiful pieces that would make lovely jewelry.

  6. I am always inspired by the lights of Christmas. This year I find the old big frosted lights to be my inspiration. With big cords and bigger lights that seemed to glow just right! This is my inspiration.

    I love the colors of each season, but the colors of the holidays are great. they seem to just pop. I love jewlery that shows lots of fun colors.

    • Cheryl
    • November 26, 2011

    My inspiration comes from the beautiful colors of Christmas. Whether they be the traditional reds, greens, golds, or the icy coldness of the winter in the blues, whites, and silver.

  8. I am enjoying my newest hobby. My thoughts are on genealogy and heritage! All the fun ways to put the antique together, and maybe with something new! It would be so much fun to win!

  9. What inspires me during the holiday is just that: the holiday. During my busiest time of year, it’s nice to escape to my work station. Picture a girl with a content smile on her face putting together a pretty piece while the world behind her is in fast forward, she’s in slow motion. The chaos of the holidays makes me stop, breathe and take time to do what I love. Bead!!

  10. I love the amulets. something I have not tried yet.

    • alice reid

    What inspires my holiday designs is the holiday itself. When I was a child, Christmas was all about color: the big colored lights on the Christmas tree, adorned with years and years of ornaments in all shades and sizes, the small white lights brilliantly lining the streets downtown providing the perfect backlight for department store displays, the reflection of colors in icicles hanging slick and dangerous from store awnings and overhangs, and snow – real and faux. All year long I make colorful jewelry with a bit of an Africentric edge. At Christmas time, I rev up my displays with crystals and semi-precious stones that not only reflect the season, but also how I feel about this most wonderful time of the year.
    Merry Christmas and Happy Kwanzaa to you all!!!!!

    I’ve discovered earrings this Christmas. It has been fun finding just the right beads, and earring styles for each person.

    What really inspires me to create is my mom. She’s always supportive and always ready to wear anything I make. She is truly a blessing and an ispiration in my life. Thank – You Mom for your loving actions and words, they touch my life more than I could ever express.
