WHILE VISITING NYC, I FOUND A KEY * ENGRAVED ON IT WAS A SIMPLE MESSAGE: "DO NOT DUPLICATE" * I IMMEDIATELY FELL IN LOVE WITH BOTH THE STATEMENT AND THE SIMPLE STYLE OF THE KEY * SO I PLANNED TO INCORPORATE THIS EXPERIENCE INTO MY WORK KEEPING THE MESSAGE ALIVE * THINKING ABOUT HOW TO ILLUSTRATE THE LOVE TO THE MESSAGE, THE FAMOUS HEART PENDANTS OF TIFFANY/NYC CAME TO MIND * I USED EXISTING ELEMENTS TO CREATE A NEW PENDANT * IS THE NEW PENDANT UNIQUE ENOUGH, THE IDEA STRONG ENOUGH, TO CONSIDER IT A NEW CREATION? * TO ME THIS REPRESENTS THE THIN LINE BETWEEN INSPIRATION AND BEING JUST A COPYCAT ***
