In the end, I think that color is probably the largest impact on viewers. Despite shape and other design elements, color can sometimes save a piece, or even just make that devestatingly beautiful piece you end up being really proud of. While I mention that I don't 'actively' think of color for color's sake, I suppose I meant that I have not made a piece from color as the starting point of a design. Well, aside from that one time... another blog challenge was to make a piece with gold as the focus.
Here are a few pieces that I found to be quite pretty when completed.
|Colors of the rainbow... or a chakra. This is all Swarovski crystal, and even |
though there are many colors here, it's just right.
|Golds and muted tones represented here. This was the piece I|
used for the March color challenge at SJA.
|Aside from the bit of gleam you see in the focal bead, this is a|
monochromatic theme. All copper. It worked out rather well.
|And finally another monochromatic theme. Opalite, silver|
and moonstone in this piece. A very showy bracelet.
Hmm do I detect a "thing" for monochromatic themes? Stay tuned as I work and grow in my craft!
