Color Inspiration - Kansas Tornado
by Kristal Wick
Kansas Tornado Landscape" is what my very creative friend calls this picture. She took it just before a tornado touched ground 10 miles from her family farm. She then used a paintbrush tool to enhance the image making the sky look like a painting.
She said this image brings back chills every time she looks at it since they weren't sure how this day was going to play out! She and her family ended up in the cellar with no damage done to their farm-thank goodness! This picture, filled with beauty and drama, really spoke to me of how fragile life is and how nature continually takes us on a roller coaster ride of change. It was a perfect image to inspire a piece of jewelry!

This bangle was quick and fun to make. With the variety of pattern wire available, you can create dozens of interesting color pallets by simply changing out the crystal color dangles. The bangle would also look fab with pearl dangles. I patinated the cuff to enhance the darling flower design in the wire and give it a more vintage look. You can skip the patina step if you want the bangle to be shiny copper colored. Work harden the bracelet if you want it to be super stiff. You could also leave off the crystal dangles and just create a simple bangle. So many possibilities!
