Sometimes we get our sense of place right at home and other times our motivation comes from far off places and a sense of the exotic; something different from our every day. In this episode designers moved beyond their comfort zone. Up first Tracy Gonzales creates hamsa earrings featuring sari silk. Then Nealay Patel is back with earrings inspired by the exotic peacock. Finally, Tammy Honaman has tips for hiding fibers with an exotic and international flare when using a loom.
This season we're exploring how to develop your sense of place and how it influences our design. One factor we haven't touched upon is designing with a strong focus on the end product and its use.

Then Candie Cooper uses leather for her cuff design. Finally, Tammy Honaman is back for another short lesson, featuring safety tips for working with enamel.
