Color Inspiration - Winter Red
by Kristal Wick
The holidays are upon us, in fact smack dab in our faces! And with that comes winter. I love many things about winter and the holidays but to be honest, I'm not a big fan of the classic green and red combo. I like a good vintage red and ivy green but that kelly green and screamin' fire engine red is only bearable for about a week. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the barrage of festivities but give me a warm red/white sweater, hot cocoa, a fireplace and call me good!
One of my fave ways to see some different color inspirations is perusing fabrics. Fabrics open up doors for new color combinations you may not have imagined and I encourage you to browse online or visit your local fabric store for some fresh ideas. I do this often when I'm stuck in a color wave (usually blues) and can't see my way out to explore another pallet.
I used this lovely red and white flannel fabric as my inspiration for this necklace. I created spiral bead cage crystals, (https://www.wirejewelry.com/jewelry_making_patterns_tutorials/Spiral-Bead-Cage_303.html) added wire wrapped pearls and attached them with twisted wire jump rings.

Hope this helps you find a little splash of red in your winter snow designs this holiday season!
