Color me Yellow





It's time for all of us to show off our colors.
The lovely talented Sally Russick of The Studio Sublime challenged us to play with our crayon colors.   I picked yellow.......



I love yellow ......so.....I looked up yellow.....

Yellow is sunshine. It is a warm color that, like red, has conflicting symbolism. On the one hand it denotes happiness and joy but on the other hand yellow is the color of cowardice and deceit.......
Hmmmm lets not think about that last bit and move on to happiness.


Yellow is the color I wore for my all time favorite grade school picture, it is the color I picked for the dress I wore to my first big event date.......it's the first bright color in my yard after a long winter, the bright center of my Shasta daisy's....yep I love yellow!!


                                                         My "inspiration" color swatch




First  you  ever so sweetly interrupt your TV watching husband with a request for him to try his way with forming a Calla Lily from your scrap spoon bowls .......(then you go hammer out one yourself )  I ended up using my petal.... but wait till you see what I did with the ones he made me!!





I purchased the large yellow stones last year on a flea market/gotta find the local bead store trip.
Thank you Sally for making  giving me the opportunity to finally create with the beautiful stones.

\
I made "5 minute" earrings as I walked out the door to the flea market today....
don't  you just love having the means to throw together the perfect pair of earrings to match your outfit!  I decided I didn't like the color of the chain I had used so when I got home from the flea market today I tore it apart and started again.....




I had fun getting out the liver of sulpher of seeing what beautiful tones the wire takes on


Ok now go do some color hopping!!

  2. Wow Kim, I love what you did with your color choice. Yellow can be a very hard color to create with, but your piece is awesome. I love the different shades of yellow that are in the stones you chose to use. You did a great job on making your cone and the glass head pins are gorgeous. I can not wait to see what you made with the one your DH made for you. You are so right it is great that one can make a pair of earrings on the fly to go with an outfit. Don't you just love being a creative crafty person? I know I do!

  8. Oh I just love your necklace! I think yellow would be a very hard color for me to design with but you make it look yummy and seem easy! I truly love your handmade Calla Lilly - that's scrumptious!! I like the darkened chain/components, too - really adds depth and character. Beautiful!

  13. I never imagined that yellow could be so warm and luxurious. I tend to veer toward using it as a bright pop of color. Thank you for showing me the way! ;) I adore your lily (and can't wait to see the ones your hubby made for you as well) and everything else about this necklace. It's divine!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh my gosh, Kim! That pendant is *stunning*!! I'm in love with that right now... Actually, the whole necklace is just perfect ;)

  15. That is really breathtaking. I love the cala lily cone. I would never have guessed it was a spoon scrap. The whole thing makes me think of flowers opening to catch the sunrise.

  21. How gorgeous! The centerpiece is great - love your story about its creation, and I look forward to seeing what you make with the pieces your husband made. It's obvious that yellow is one of your favorite colors -- it shines through in these creations (sorry, couldn't avoid the pun!)

  22. I love the cala lily - you did a great job there (and I can't wait to see what you did with your hubby's pieces). This is such a warm and charming necklace, lovely!

  26. I adore this necklace. The large yellow stones, the calla lily, and especially the gunmetal color of the chain mixed with the antique brass of the bead caps, etc. I just love everything about it. Well done!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Super cool! I love this piece.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Beautiful! Found it interesting too how the liver of sulfer patina on your lilly echoes the warmth of your yellow beads. Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh My! You made that calla lily?!? It is gorgeous...absolutely stunning! The whole necklace has such wonderful flow. I don't see how yellow could have any negative connotations, so I agree that the negatives should be ignored.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Beautiful! And I have made many earrings right before walking out the door :-)

    ReplyDelete
