For some strange, inexplicable reason, I’m really into making jewelry with yellow this year. I don’t know why. This is a color I’d never wear on my body other than in jewelry. I’d feel ridiculous and look like a bee or worse, a banana!
I’m one of those people who wear mostly black. Perhaps I need some sunlight and color in my life, something bright and cheerful. I recently made that Yuki (my collie) inspired bracelet and was left craving yellow. Maybe something is lacking in my diet?
As part of a Mothers’ Day challenge for the JewerlyMakingJournal I made this birds’ nest necklace using yellow jasper (more of a mustard color) and yellow jade.
I even made a collection on Artfire featuring yellow handmade items!
I’m still on the look out for more yellow stones. Perhaps I’ll find some at the Bead Fest here on Long Island this weekend.
