Color Inspiration - Think Pink

by Nancy Chase
These beautiful blossoms caught my eye earlier this spring. It wouldn't be the summer of '23 if I didn't see a little bit of extra pink in the season !
Close-up photos show an awareness that a simple walk through the park does not realize. Subtle shades of almost white pink, to bright fuchsia, in the petals, then many shades of green, and gold. Sunlight beams a translucent glow of shadows in the greenery. I like the color palette name, "Black Olive." In the background the deep green colors give a depth to the frame.

Pink mother-of-pearl shell tile beads dangle from these fun summer earrings. Some of the tiles have a similar pattern to these flower petals. Chunky jade serpentine gemstones anchor this design, as the leaves and branches in the photo grow below the blossoms. Small round beads are called Matuba beads. They are Czech glass beads made in the Czech glass-making region. Dappled light on the yellow leaves, and the stamen of the flowers led me to select the square crackle agate beads, encompassing the variations of lightest brown to hues of orange.
So add a little pink accessory this summer. These flirty earrings are sure to start a conversation!
