Color Inspiration - Toes in the Sand

by Kristal Wick
I recently moved to Grand Lake Oklahoma and love lake style living. It's casual with a daily dose of nature and I spend a lot of time on meditative walks by the lake with my pups. There's also a whole lotta' boating from kayaks and pontoons to speed boats - I enjoy them all.
I took this shot of pelicans on Bad Island (yup, that's the name) during a lake cruise and their beauty was stunning. Inspired by lake living, I had these custom charms made and couldn't resist using them in this piece!

Making your own chain is a wonderful skill to have in your tool kit. Change the color or gauge of wire and you have an entirely different look. This chain is quick and simple. Use a two tone pallet like I did or use a dozen colors for a fun variety. I added gold to the chain color to make the other colors pop and enhance the resin focal. This chain also looks great without a focal and is very lightweight so you could layer more than one chain easily.
