While my pulling of pages slowed to a trickle over the years, my magazine obsession has continued, and my list of titles expanded. Over the last 10 years of my jewelry career I've mainly pulled pages for design inspiration, and it's been a very effective way to jump-start my brain when I need a design push.
But we have some new toys these days for visual cues, and while I have learned that I don't like reading magazines online (strange when I have willingly given up physical books for my Kindle) I LOVE the endless sensory overload of Pinterest and Houzz. And pinning things is much like pulling those pages out of magazines again. My life has come full circle.
