Pebble path colour palette
The mundane becomes inspiration
When I work on creating paper jewellery I often go back to my own photo archive for inspiration. I like to use my photos to create a colour palette for my designs.
By pixelating a photo I extract the basic hues that make up the image. Then I go about choosing the exact colours I want to use by keeping those that work well together for my design and eliminating the rest.
An old pebble path usually goes unnoticed. Yet in this case it became the inspiration not only for the colour palette but also for the shape of these beads. This one-of-a-kind necklace is made up with paper beads, up cycled from newspaper pages.
