Music=Inspiration


We all know that in order to make music, the musician needs inspiration, because music is an art form.

But how many of us realize that music itself can serve as inspiration to create other art forms, such as paintings, written works, crafts?

When making jewelry, I have often noticed that certain songs make me feel more relaxed, even more creative, if you wish. 

Certain music styles put me into 'creative mode', whereas other styles which I normally love to listen to just irritate my ear while I'm making jewelry.

So today I thought I'd share some songs from my 'Inspiration playlist' with you :
