We've all heard the phrase attributed to Oscar Wilde that "life imitates art far more than art imitates life". I don't know about that (one way or the other), but I do know that life inspires art. At least for me.
I go to the gym almost every day...my spin class is what keeps me sane (mostly). There is a monitor on the wall that rotates through the most beautiful photographs of nature and architecture, and it almost always makes me think of the beautiful gemstones I've got in my studio.
Recently, I finished my class and found my phone was still charged, so I took some pictures of the pictures and thought I'd share them and the stones/jewelry they inspire for me.
