Just a couple of things...

The color challenge I gave myself in the last post didn't seem to set off creative fireworks like I was hoping. I do have a couple of things to show and I will continue to keep working with the colors I mixed and canes I made.  First off, I made a pendant that is inspired by the Art Bead Scene challenge.

And the second piece is a flower with two of the colors from the first color combo. The center of this flower is a vintage earring....I was going to say old, but vintage always sounds so much nicer. :)

They really aren't floating in clouds. I bake on fiberfill. It is great for cushioning petals and it doesn't leave unsightly shinny spots on the bottoms.   ...my tip for the day.

Color Challenge

I have found that I need a kick start to creativity at the beginning of this new year. On Pinterest I pin color palettes on to my Inspirations board and I keep thinking that I will choose one and play with some colors. I pinned this one not long ago and I really love the soft colors.

I also noticed this January color challenge on the Art Bead Scene blog and it has a similar palette of colors....although with more of an autumn feel.

I'm not sure that I will join the challenge or anything but at personal level because jewelry design really isn't my strong suit, but it will be fun playing with the feel and colors.

I've looked for some examples that would fit in with the feel and/or color pallete and these are the items I found.

I will keep looking for examples and will share what I come up with soon.
