1) Stay organized – I find that when I lay out all of my materials before I begin it makes it so much easier for me while creating. Not having to worry about where this or that is allows for my creative side to run free.
2) Go with the flow. Often I find myself looking at a piece and wanting to make changes! Change is good, go with it! (As long as it’s not a custom order of course :)) At time, it takes starting a creation to realize it’s potential. It’s okay to change your mind; often times you’ll create something you had never thought of before.
3) Use the right tools. I have had many people ask me if it’s okay to use scissors to cut wire or if it’s okay to use their fingers instead of pliers. While I cannot say that it is not okay, I have to say that using the proper tools shows in your work and it makes it easier to create. In my opinion, having a variety of tools on hand is the best way to begin a project. Save your hands and invest in some new tools!
