Color Inspiration - A Classic Color Combo
by Debbie Blair
Ideas for color combinations for our jewelry making can come from anywhere at any time. Don't forget to notice the colors in your world for instant inspiration!
There's an unrivaled beauty to the Pacific Northwest, regardless of the season. Last
October my husband and I found ourselves in the quaint little town of Gig Harbor, just a
hop, skip, and a jump from Tacoma. The locals suggested a certain scenic drive, which
took us along winding roads, in and out of wooded areas, with glimpses of Puget Sound
around every other bend. A short ferry ride landed us on Vashon Island, where we
explored its charming main street, full of cozy coffee shops and old-fashioned
storefronts. The lighthouse in the photo sat on the eastern tip of the island and offered
so many great photo opportunities. I was really struck by the contrast of the weathered
logs against the starkness of the structure itself. I pulled together a pair of earrings
reflecting the blues and grays in the photo, with white and rusty accents that are shown
in the lighthouse.
