My creative space...

Although 'My Creative Space' over at Kootoyoo hasn't officially started back up again for the new year, I thought I'd show you what I've been working on anyway!

Lots of delicious stones...

...some sketching of new ideas... a little *sketching* on the computer ;-)

...and lots of luscious silver...

There is a distinct lack of beads to be found on my workbench these days.  

I think I've been seduced by silver and stone!


I'm slightly obsessed with Moroccan doors and doorways at the moment.  Aren't they just inspiring!

Expect to see lots of these gorgeous shapes popping up in my work soon!


I hope that the new year is being kind to you so far.

Is your Muse still on holiday, or is she inspiring you with new ideas?


  1. Those stones and shapes are just beautiful!! Can't wait to see the finished pieces! xx

  2. Hi Belinda,
    wow wow wow, i like your works, they are very great.

  3. Gorgeous stones!!! And beautiful shapes! I love the whole Moroccan spirit! You have a great taste!

  4. Gorgeous stones. And I've totally got the hots for Moroccan doors too!

  5. The stones are so beautiful and I love your new ideas!!

  6. Beautiful stones and beautiful sketches, Belinda--I can't wait to see the finished results! :) xo

  7. In my first college painting class, I became obsessed with doors and arches. Obsessed! Seeing this gorgeous Moroccan doorways has brought that all back - lovely inspiration, can't wait to see what comes of it!

  8. The stones are beautiful!!! You are very talented!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Aren't the stones delicious, Wendy! I can barely wait to create special jewellery with them :-) In fact, as soon as I pulled one of the turquoise stones out of its packaging, I immediately got to sketching a design for it! LOL

    Thank you so much, Karin! :-)

    Jana, I find Moroccan style infinitely Moroccan Odyssey Collection could be a never-ending project at the rate I'm going!

    Kirsty, Moroccan doors are just so darn cool. Why don't we have doors like this in Australia??? Or everywhere, for that matter. They are GORGEOUS!

    Thank you, Anna...I hope to have some new pieces to show very soon! ;-)

    Thanks Ivy :-) My sketching leaves a lot to be desired most of the time! LOL These ones were reasonable enough to post on my blog though. The first sketch is being translated to silver and stone right now! ;-)

    Oh yes Brandi, it is easy to become obsessed with doorways and arches. Something about the shapes and textures just drive my Muse crazy with ideas!

    Thank you Heroilda, you're too kind!

  10. Thank you for sharing. Nothing inspires me more than sketches and reading about creative processes.

    And I love all those cabs!

  11. You make my day every time you stop by. Thank you. I cannot wait to see what happens to those stones in your very capable hands. Keep creating and inspiring. Thank you!

  12. I'm very happy to share, Susanna...I really enjoy seeing other artist's sketches and learning about their creative processes too! The cabs are gorgeous, aren't they! I just couldn't say 'no' ;-)

    Likewise, Marcie! Your support and encouragement always means the world to me ♥

  13. It's awesome to see your sketch process, they are beautiful as well as the final product

  14. Those stones ..... those doors ......!!!
    I yearn to visit Morocco.
    Love your sketches Belinda. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished pieces. xx

  15. Aren't they gorgeous, Lenita! All of these stones are from Etsy sellers :-) I have to hold myself back because there are just so many exquisite stones I'd love to have! There will be at least one finished piece featuring a yummy Sonora Sunrise chrysocolla coming soon ;-) B. -xo-


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment!
