At the moment I am becoming increasingly obsessed with Pinterest. Pinterest is a virtual ‘pin board’. You can use it to create photo boards of all the things you find and like online – or even upload your own photos of stuff from the real world!!

I’m really enjoying using it to create visual inspiration boards for my jewellery collections, it gives a new purpose to hours spent idly browsing online and when I find something that clicks in my head I can add it to a pinboard and hopefully build up a visual reference of all the things that influence my work. I also use it as an online notebook to store interesting and inspiring images to come back to later for things I haven’t even though about making yet.
