Color Makes My Heart Sing

“Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing? Can one really explain this? no. Just as one can never learn how to paint.” ~Pablo Picasso

I am committed to working on the photography of my sterling jewelry and updating my web galleries featuring it, but after spending a week photographing sterling silver on gray I was in need of a color injection. Over the weekend I squeezed in a little bead stringing. Working with polymer clay and beads adds color to my life literally and figuratively. It is hard to verbally explain how much color feeds my spirit. Color has the power to lift me in indescribable ways. How does color speak to you?

I state on my website in many different ways how therapeutic these varied art forms are for me as I playfully experiment with a continuum of color and texture combinations. The trails of inspiration that lead to the colors I combine are rather endless. This color combination was inspired by one glass bead I worked with many months ago. The solid color polymer clay beads lend opportunity for me to feature some fun textures. My random assortment of beads I string with them just add to the play of texture and color.
