Jewelry Designing with Color


A great place to find inspiration is in color - which is all around you.  Jewelry making is an art and they say that ART is in the eye of the beholder.  The wonderful thing about color is that it's all around you.  Bring your awareness to your surroundings and you will see amazing things.  Colors you never noticed before all of a sudden jump out in the landscape.  

The trending colors for FALL fashion are rich shades of green, blue, and purples.  Earthtones always add to the beauty of autumn but they are versatile enough to be used all year long.  


Artists can find a wonderful array of jewelry findings in various colors of beads, pearls, crystals, wire, clay or stones to accent a spectacular piece of jewelry or to use those components to create a design around a particular color.  




Look around you to find bold colors that will enhance your handmade jewelry pieces.  This is a fun way to make your pieces a bit more interesting.  Working with beautiful beads or gemstones challenges the the craftsman to make something unique by mixing colors or adding variations of the same hue to create a dazzling and beautiful jewelry piece.    


There's always inspirational ideas in jewelry making books too so don't forget to pull your favorite one off the shelf.  Go out and create something beautiful by adding some vibrantly colored supplies to your next impressive design.  You'll be glad you did.
