Discovering Yellow

Leave a comment

Step aside, Sol. Move over dandelions. The woman has discovered yellow. And who’da thunk it would be so much fun. Whoo-hoo!

Don’t know what I was thinking before but it never occurred to me to actually use yellow. I mean I know somebody must have been cause they make yellow beads, right? But it weren’t me.

Until now. When I was beading the apple cab I needed a colour to set off the bright pink. Hmmm. After trying several options I finally resorted to a package of yellow beads. Zowie. What a neat combo. So when it came time to add a necklace strap I decided to carry the yellow theme through that as well. Good choice.

The results with that necklace prompted me to make it the main colour in the next piece, Calypso. That necklace didn’t even make it to my New Gallery. I finished it in time for my last show and decided to put it up for sale there. It sold the first day — to a local welder (who also bought 2 pairs of new earrings). Gotta love days like that 🙂

Beads? What can I say — they snuck up on me when I wasn't looking. Now I'm hooked.
