Duende

At the festival last week I was able to talk to so many people about my work and answer questions I didn't even realize people had like "what was your inspiration?" 

As someone who crochets (I'm not a painter or sculptor) that's not a question I get very often - and yet I do have inspirations for the items that I make.  

My Flower Brooch and Hair Clip (pictured above, which, yes, will be in the shop shortly) were both in a way inspired by this amazing woman.

Carmen Amaya, a Romani flamenco dancer and singer who started off dancing at the age of  4 in the streets of Barcelona with her father at the guitar. She grew to define much of the power, the strength, the duende (or soul) of flamenco as we know it today.
