Colour Play

This series of Colour Play posts has been inspired by my front garden!  Every time I am working in my studio I get very distracted by what is happening there.  I was so pleased when I wandered around one day to find that we had a grevillea bush.  I don’t know what it is about grevillea’s, but I think they are stunning!

I chose an olive green as the base of all of the new pieces, because I liked the contrast of the green with the dark pink/red of the flower.  So, the first necklaces you are about to see were supposed to look more like that, but something happened to the glass in the kiln (I think it was in there for too long), and they came out more dark coral.  That’s OK, I still like the result, it’s just not quite what I had in mind!
