Color Inspiration - Misty Mountains
by Kristal Wick
Living in the stunning state of Colorado, I am forever in awe of the beauty and nature's ever-changing color pallet. Usually, I am drawn to brighter tones for my jewelry inspiration so this one is out of my "normal" comfort zone. I tuned into the monochromatic mountain feeling of this image and this bracelet was born! It was a really satisfying experience to jump into an unfamiliar color pallet and see where that path led me artistically.
I also experimented with a "new to me wire"-aluminum. Recently, I've had many customers request more lighter-weight jewelry so I gave it a try. I love the results! Light weight and very easy to work with so double the fun. I usually gravitate to large links for bracelets as I did in this one, but you could make this same design using the smaller oval mandrel pliers for a more delicate look. Join me and step out of your color comfort zone!

Creatively,
Kristal
