Color Inspiration - Stack of Pancakes
by Debbie Blair
I hope this prompts you to take a fresh look at the ordinary events in your home, like meal time, and consider how they might inspire your next jewelry design.
I don't know about you, but my family and I have gone through bouts of binge-watching various television shows during the pandemic. With a child in the house, many of our choices have been relegated to family-friendly fare, like travel shows or cooking shows. My daughter's favorite is Master Chef Junior, and she especially likes the episodes where the winner of a particular challenge is rewarded by having the opportunity to dump large amounts of wet or sticky ingredients on the celebrity chef judges' heads. Most recently, the challenge was to cook as many pancakes as the contestants were able to in ten minutes. The winner then climbed a ladder behind the judges, and pulled the trigger to dump what must have been several gallons of syrup onto their heads.
The day after that episode aired I was inspired to take a closer look at our food, the colors in particular. When I imported this photo of pancakes into my color palette program, I was pleasantly surprised by the pretty muted palette that resulted.

The mauves and browns were unexpected, and make for a pretty beaded wire-frame pendant using 18- and 26-gauge wire, plus a handful of assorted beads and pearls.
