Challenge of Color Blog Hop

A big thank you goes out to Erin of Tesori Trovati Jewelry and Treasures Found: Inspiration is Everywhere blog fame for hosting a fabulous blog hop today.  Each of us were given a specific color palette to work within to design a piece of jewelry.

I chose "Brown" as my general color choice, and here is the palette Erin chose for me:

Palette courtesy of: Design Seeds


Aren't those colors just so rich and beautiful?  Here's what I made:



I love the earthy feel of the colors, and was able to pull in some gorgeous river rock beads, beautiful Picasso-finish Czech roundels and small wood rounds to combine with antiqued copper wire and handmade copper headpins.  I made the mosaic focal specially to match this color palette, using stained glass and a pre-made bezel.





The colors of the beads and rocks compliment the stained glass mosaic focal beautifully and the little dangly charms and lucite leaf add whimsical elements to the design.


 


Take a few minutes and check out the other participants' blogs to see what they did with their own palettes:

18 Tari Kahrs ~ Orange ~ Citrus Tones
23 Amy Severino ~ Orange ~ Winged Tones
28 Linda Landig ~ Green ~ Cacti Dark

Love how you did the focal...and the addition of the stones is just genius. Love the little pop of red that sparks up the very earthy palette. A really gorgeous look.
