Favorite Technique: Color Mixing

I love to mix and combine colors and use the Pantone Fashion Color Report for my inspiration. I then like to use a variety of techniques to create jewelry pieces from those color combinations. One color combo for example is turquoise, fusion coral and Aurora.

I might start with a Mokume Gane technique I learned from Julie Picarello last year which is a lot of fun. I can create pendants, hair barrettes, beads and other jewelry pieces.

I will then experiment with my extruder and make several types of canes for more jewelry pieces.

I also love creating stripe blends which I call my Candy Cane Stripes to make different shaped beads.

And finally, with my left over "scrap" pieces I love to create lentil swirls, natasha beads and other mirror image pieces.
