I love, love, love all the new colors in fashion for Spring. From mint greens to bright corals to pale lavenders. I have been designing jewelry with some of these same colors. I can’t help it…fashion inspires me. But to ground all that color, I like to add a little darkness which can be accomplished with colored wire in shades such as hematite or bronze as shown in the earrings below. Or, just adding other pretty colors such as pink pearls mixed with gold findings demonstrated in the necklaces.

Also, I have been having fun with “twisting” the wire. Whether using thicker or thiner wire and twisting just a little or a lot, it is easy to get such a variety of designs.
