Have you tried it yet? If not.....why not join us for the July/August summer palette challenge.....using chocolate brass and these HOT
The palette was chosen by my Idea Girls, Marcia Tuzzolino, Jann Tague and Irene Hoffman. It's a great look, festive, can't you just hear the mariachi music and smell the enchiladas in the oven and the fajitas on the grill?
And the fact is, these are good, clear colors that can be worn in some form by just about EVERYONE. Paired with the chocolate brass, it's just a winner all the way down the line.
How can you be part of the challenge? Well, this year, we have decided that all our challenges will be TWO months long, and will be based on a plating shade and a color palette that enhances it. The Idea Girls will mull and choose the palettes along with a little input from me....
And the rest will be easy! Time to gather materials from B'sue Boutiques .....my supply company which sponsors the challenges....and see what you have stashed away that will work. We're not telling you what sort of jewelry to make, just make something that you think works well with the way the colors MAKE YOU FEEL. Any sort of jewelry, any technique is fine, so long as it contains a few visible things from our place, and our chocolate brass. Although we've just recently brought it back, we carried it for some time before in the past, so it's likely that many have pieces put aside in their workshops, too.
Need some inspiration?
These pieces were made by a number of members of the B'sue Boutiques Creative Group Come and join us!
More inspiration... Here Marcia Tuzzolino shows you how to start. Just pull out the brass and the colors.....and start moving things around on your table....
It won't be long before you have some results!
I love making these bracelets.....hmmmm. How about if I made another using the HOT summer palette? I think I just might!
These beads just arrived that work with the palette....
Find those beads here:
Here is some choxie interpretation from Jann Tague:
Start pulling out those bits and pieces, this challenge is gonna be SO much fun!
The only type of jewelry that won't qualify for inclusion on our challenge board is a single pair of earrings......if you have made a pair that look great, we'll need you to pair them up with a brooch, a bracelet, a necklace, a ring....something.
Joan Williams of Lil Ruby has, already!
That palette is tailor made for the Lil Ruby design style! So pretty....
So come on over and dive into a pile of choxie brass! And join us for this fun summer challenge. At the beginning of September, I'll post a randomly-drawn winner for this one; I would LOVE to see a BUNCH of participation. If we get 50 or more submissions, I will draw TWO giftie winners!
Let's see your great ideas!
