I want to take full credit for my new Mood Board, but it was actually my daughter's idea. This is why you send them to college!!!
Each month I will have a new color or two to play with. January colors are Serenity and Rose Quartz. Not two colors I would normally select. But, this is the exercise...let's get out of our "safe color boxes" and play with something fun.
Those who know me are probably going, eesh,right now...I am a green (notice the backdrop) copper, bronzy type of gal. Even I am getting bored with my favorite colors.
I selected some photos that incorporate
these two colors. Rather nice, right. Then I picked
out a few beads that represent the January colors and created a piece of jewelry. Those colors are Toho #126 - a very soft yet rich pink; Toho #46F - a beautiful matte blue and Delica #1507 - softer blue with some nice sparkle to it.
The necklace is made using these beads with an opaque white AB for accent. The focal is a mother of pearl button with a Czech button in the center. And,
don't you just love those nice chunky beads......
What can you come up with? Post any ideas/photos of your creations. There are other beads that will represent the pantone colors, so get into the beads and PLAY!
One last photo...I LOVE beading, but I do have another passion.....
