This post is about jewelry making. I don't think that I have ever posted about making jewelry before. Well, for those of you that don't know, this is what I do all day long. It's my passion. I absolutely love to make jewelry. My focus is on easy to wear jewelry. That means I like to design jewelry that you can easily put on and take off by yourself. Ok, enough background. Here's what I want to share with you today.
I'm a member of The Hudson Valley Etsy Team. A group of artisans that live in the Hudson Valley Region of New York State and sell our handmade items on etsy.com Our blog http://hvetsyians.blogspot.com/ recently started doing "Inspiration Wednesday" Posts. On Wednesday my teammate Shannon from http://www.etsy.com/shop/ForMySweetDaughter posts a color palette that she chooses from http://design-seeds.com/ Readers are asked to use all or part of the color palette as inspiration to create something and post the link on the blog the following Wednesday. Up until now, I had not created anything with the color palettes selected on previous weeks.This past week, as soon as I saw these colors, I felt compelled to create something, immediately.
Does color influence you in a powerful way? Check out the color palette for next week's design inspiration here http://hvetsyians.blogspot.com/ maybe you will be inspired to create something. If you are, please feel free to share what you made by posting a link in the comments section of the team blog or here on my blog or both. Oh, by the way, it does not have to be jewelry - it could be knitting, painting, sculpting, sewing whatever you like to create with.
