November's challenge was one that encouraged us to stretch as artists by using colors that we did not like as the feature in a piece of jewelry.
Many of us already knew which colors we didn't like, some were quite passionate about it. Others had a hard time finding a "bad" color.
Take a look at the wonderful things we have created.
We learned that Cat hates the color library carpet green. The color is so bad (really! she provided photographic evidence) that no one dared make beads to match it.
Cat chose a similar shade of green and created a beautiful rain forest tree, an entry that set the bar high for the rest of us.
It was a good challenge, one that made us stretch our minds and embrace something a little bit uncomfortable like all good dares should. Thank you to everyone who participated.
I am leaving you with the link to a video about making inspiration color boards so that you may enjoy exploring your own feeling about color.
