The topic for this month’s SATeam blog carnival is: Tell us about colour in your work.
I love colour! Colour sometimes reflects my mood, and at other times colour affects my mood. One of the things that I love most about designing jewelry is the ability to play with colour. My materials provide me with a full colour palette and I can go in any direction with it.
I love colourful colours much more than neutrals. And I’m naturally drawn to cool colours, so blue, green and purple make frequent appearances in my work.
But selling jewelry has allowed me to dabble with other colours, colours that I don’t usually wear myself, such as orange, brown, and grey.
At first using these other colours was a challenge. I started using them because I knew I needed to showcase a wider variety of colours, but now I also find myself drawn to stones that are in more neutral colours, but that have beautiful, interesting patterns. They are stones with character and personality.
One thing I do know, no matter what I choose – warm or cool, bright or neutral – colour will always be a part of my work. Colour lifts the mood, adds life, catches the eye.
So what’s your story with colour?
