Theresa Nguyen Inspiration

My approach to silver design and making

The source of my creativity and inspiration

People often ask me whether there are particular sources of inspiration for my pieces. I try and draw inspiration from both my experiences and interests whether they be from travel, nature, music, acting or history, literature and art. They all provide the necessary sparks of inspiration that are required to set alight the creative process.

On a practical level, I produce sketches and create models to make an idea visible on a three dimensional scale. At other times I work directly with the metal and allow the metal to evolve, take shape and form organically.
