Dream of Irnan the Irish Sorceress, in Icy Blue!
It was really cool to read the newest Disney on Ice show is titled "Dare to Dream". Of course, that is a favorite title of mine as well. *wink* I have always had an affinity for and was drawn to fairy tales, fantasy and mythology. As a child, choosing library books about Cinderella, princes, princesses, Knights in Armor and Dragons were common.
This love of dreamy, fantasy things, is also what inspires my work; both in jewelry and art. This also inspires my titles of my work; for instance, the title of the ring in the above photo is "Irnan, the Irish Sorceress".
Here, the title lured me in and the "charming" story of a real-life fairy tale will always cause me to stop what I'm doing to read.
[Black and her husband, James, are in their sixth year of performing as Cinderella and her prince for Disney on Ice. Both say playing these iconic roles is a dream come true and that being married makes them more believable to the audience. It also means the pair don't have to speak and can read each other's body signals on the ice...
..."Dare to Dream" features not only Cinderella and Prince Charming, but also Rapunzel and Flynn from "Tangled" and Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen from "The Princess and the Frog."]

Is there something in your life that makes you stop and Dream - or inspires your work, or your day, or your life? I sure hope so...
