Color Inspiration - Driftwood
by Debbie Blair
One of the best things about growing up in Colorado is the time my family would spend alongside a mountain lake, fishing, hiking or just daydreaming. My brother, sister and I would scour the shoreline, looking for river rocks or fishing lures or animal tracks. We'd walk on logs and build sand castles with moats that filled with lake water.
Driftwood at these mountain lakes would often be adorned with tangled fishing line, but we found that they made a darn good bench for sitting while we had our pole in the water. As I've gotten older, I've learned to appreciate the beauty in the driftwood I come across, the juxtaposition of long, smooth sections and rough, jagged parts.

For my Driftwood Necklace, I created wrapped loop links of irregular mookaite beads in an ombre pattern, combined with three sizes of beach glass rings joined with jump rings. I'll wear this necklace to remind me of my childhood days spent in the mountains with my family.

Cheers!
Debbie
