BCP 09 | Inspiration to Design with Met Innmon

by Mandi Ainsworth on March 6, 2013


In my interview with Met Innmon, we discuss taking a idea from inspiration to design, the ping-pong effect of design collaboration, and the cool classes she will be teaching at Bead & Button. I hope you enjoy the interview.

Thoroughly enjoyed listening to you and Met, while working on a somewhat repetitive chevron chain :-)
As to inspiration~do I use sketches, or just play? Yes…and yes! :-) A little of both, depending on what I’m working on. I tend to sketch more for strung work (which almost always includes some beadweaving as well as the strung elements), and play more for bead-weaving.
And I also have a drawer full of components of various types that I will use at some time. :-)
I also was horrified when I saw that people were ripping out things! LOL

Lori, it makes me so happy to hear that you were beading while listening. That’s what I envisioned when I started the podcast :) I’m so glad you keep your various components without ripping, hehe. I use sketches too sometimes, but usually its because I’m working on something else and I get an idea. So I have to get it on paper before I forget about it! Thanks for sharing with us and I appreciate your comment :)
