La Nuit des Temps...

"La Nuit des Temps", R.Barjavel (1968)
La folie humaine et le destin tragique d'Eléa et Paikan...
Au centre de ma "Nuit des Temps": une améthyste rugueuse et scintillante, comme un glacier...

It's time for another ride on the merry-go-round!
Jump on and join a group of 7 artists/crafts-women as they link around the world and tell you a little about their lives in art and craft.

This month, we talk about our favourite colours and how they come into our work.

My favourite colours are raspberry and teal, but in natural stones, they are very very, VERY rare lol!!! So I like to work with all colours, I don’t really have a favourite, nor do I follow the summer/spring etc. colour schemes.

I look in my stone stash every day (I have several boxes like this one above) and there is always a stone that jumps at me, and most of the time it’s colour is related to the mood I’m in, the weather outside (well, mostly how strong the sun is outside lol), what I am wearing etc…

At the moment I am making a lot a little pendants, so I dive in every box and leave no stone unturned, as it were lol, to pick a couple of stones to work on that day.

In general, the deeper or stronger the colour, the more I am drawn to it.

I also always give my creations a name, and a lot of the time, it is in direct relation to the colour of the stones I have used, like below “Iris and Whipped Cream”, “Seafoam”, “Blackcurrant” or “Ice Drop”.

Also sometime, the colour of the stone gives me a feeling or an (often warped!) emotion, and the name comes from that, like “The Vampire’s Fiancee”, “Creek”, “Desert Rose” or “Gothika”.

Matched them yet? =D

Thanks for reading!!
