Colour Palette Challenge
I thought about taking part in a Thing a Day challenge this year but decided I would only get behind and frustrated when life got in the way. The last couple of weeks I’ve had plenty of creative time but January I didn’t really touch my clay at all 🙁
I did however happen across a Flickr group (I watch Flickr instead of TV these days, much more inspiring) called Color Palette a Week . Every week Chris who started the group posts a palette of colours and the idea is that people create something using that palette then share it with the group. I tend to stick with similar colours and I have been thinking for a while that perhaps I should ‘design’ my pieces of jewellery using a palette of colours rather than just picking up what I feel like so this seemed like a good challenge. I was slow to get started but finally posted my first item to the group (2 weeks late but… I started it in the right week).

I made a Skinner blend from all four colours in the palette but the pendant would of been giant to fit them all in so I lost most of the turquoises, should of thought about what I was doing before I started but I just mixed up the colours and decide to blend them. As it is it’s 7cm across!
Imade it using the instructions by Mari O’Dell for an Art nouveau pendant in the book ‘The Art of Jewellery – Polymer Clay by Katherine Duncan Aimone.
