The Instagram Edit: #Inspiration

The best jewelry designers tend to be tuned in to the world around them, forever in search of fodder for new collections.

Many use Instagram as a repository for the ideas, images, and palettes that move them, offering a window into their creative process. As the screenshots below convey, inspiration can strike almost anywhere—on NYC’s Fifth Avenue (Catherine Iskiw), in the garden (Shamila), or just luxuriating down a self-created rabbit hole of gorgeous Pinterest pics. Ruth Tomlinson was enamored of the dusty pastel colors of a distressed wooden doorway; for Amy Glaswand, it was the spiraling edges of a midcentury glass table.

We’ll have to wait for any jewelry designs that take shape, but imagining the possibilities is half the fun.
