Color Inspiration - Ice Ice Baby
by Kristal Wick
I love winter! Don't get me wrong, I love the other seasons too but my body craves the snowy cold (for a very limited time) every year to get that hygge feeling. Many of you share it too! It's when we pull out our yarn, beads and hunker down for a bit of hygge. Hygge is a Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment. Growing up in Minnesota you had to embrace your inner hygge and make peace with winter or be tormented half your life since that's how long Minnesota winter last!
Currently living in Colorado, winter is an entirely different animal. You can actually enjoy winter sports, chilly walks and sledding easily since it's not brutally cold all season. I find such inspiration in my jewelry and knitting color pallets from winter and this image is one of my new faves! Taken last year at the Ice Castle event in Dillon, CO-these icy stalagmites totally inspired this necklace.

Starting with silver wire, a few pearls and crystals-viola'. I hammered a piece of 16 gauge wire to make the base and wrapped the beads with 24 gauge wire around the base. I added a bit of boho in the tassel and finished up with a fun chain. This project is a great way to use those orphaned beads or precious gemstones you simply can't part with!

Creatively,
Kristal
