Color Inspiration - Red Rocks Winter

by Kristal Wick
It's the middle of July and we're having a major heat wave across the country. Nothing helps me keep my cool better than creating a piece of jewelry inspired by a winter scene.
I am that obnoxious so-excited-winter-is-coming type of person you summer lovers roll your eyes at!

This beautiful wintry shot of Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, my old stomping grounds, inspired these earrings. I chose white pearls to represent snow with the spectacular blue sky background color for the crystals. I love the contrast of the copper colored beading wire and crimps. The glittery icy touch of the silver crimps pull together the look for this simple yet elegant design.
