But lately I sort of discovered the color and it really looks great. This sea urchin is meant to spark up the summer or the winter for that matter. I intend on using it with my chunky bracelet.
It is so lovely to discover colors I rarely use. It gives a new dimension and challenge the idea of a color.
The sea urchin is a copy of a real one that I made a mold from. I make them hollow and with the texture just as it is in real life. I happen to love making them and I always keep some finished unpainted ones so I can make one necklace in a hurry. I only need the disks and the beads.
After baking they are painted with acrylic paint and heat set in the oven. I have made a lot of them for gifts, giveaways and for my own use.
Right now I am knitting on a gift that takes up all available time every day and has been for nearly two weeks.
But I had to put it away for a couple of hours to clear it out of my head for a while. And then the orange sea urchin popped into my head - and since my brain is huge I had to get it out quickly. LOL!!!
Orange is a part of the rainbow. And when the sky goes orange in the evening it is on its most beautiful. I will remember that wearing my new pendant. It is the little things that count - and a orange break was just what I needed.
I wish you a break in just the color you want!
