Spring is in the air!

Well here we are 7th day of January and still no snow on the ground. My hometown barely got a dusting of a white Christmas and here in Connecticut today it is supposed to be in the 60s. Spring is here at least for now, which is bad considering the impact of global warming of course, but it has inspired me to start focusing on some bright and fresh springy jewelry.  When I think of spring I think of rainbows and flowers, birds, and the trees turning green with new growth. Spring is a time of renewal, of rebirth.  For my color palette I think of pastels in pinks blues and yellows. Bright colors too. I may even throw in some lime green, which I'm normally not very fond of but thanks to my nieces I have learned that it actually makes a nice accent color when combined with royal blue and purple and it also goes well with light blue and magenta.

I have first promised myself that I will catch up on projects before I dive into spring, so keep watching to see what pops up here.

What colors and things pop into your mind when you think of Spring? Feel free to share below and happy beading!

  1. Like you, I think of pinks and greens when it comes to spring. Being Welsh, the bright yellow of daffodils too!
