Color Inspiration - Hiking Beauty
by Debbie Blair
My home state of Colorado has numerous opportunities for outdoor recreation, which is one of the main reasons many people move here. Regardless of the season or whether you live in a small town, a city, or in the mountains, there's no shortage of things to do in the great outdoors.
Many people flock to Colorado in the winter for the chance to go skiing or snowshoeing. Though a native, I've never been one to enjoy winter sports. I much prefer hiking or biking in the warmer seasons, on trails close to home or an hour's drive up into the mountains. I chose this photo of hiking with friends and derived a color palette of blues, browns, and golden yellows.

I selected a favorite owl pendant, then chose an assortment of glass beads to match the palette. I love how the wrapped-loop links on the 20-gauge colored wire add a little more color dimension to the piece. To finish it off, I selected a turquoise-color braided leather strap, which I attached using 24-gauge gold wire.

I hope you find enjoyment and inspiration in the nature that surrounds you.

Cheers!
Debbie
