Background story – Blue Ocean Necklace

I know a few people have asked me where my inspiration comes from for certain pieces that I create and I decided to let you know a little of the background story…

I love the ocean, not swimming in it, but sitting on a rock and just watching the ocean. It fascinates me. (Yes, I know I’m weird, ha ha) I was looking at a picture that I took of the ocean in Mossel Bay and I closed my eyes and thought of how it crashed on the rock and then ran into the little pools in front of the beach and foamed and swirled and I thought how beautiful that is and how I would like to try and recreate that effect on a pendant. I sat with the back piece of the pendent and started playing with nail polish and water and swirling the colours together and trying to get the swirl effect.

I eventually got the effect I was looking for and then finished off the necklace. In order to do the rest of the necklace, I usually try to find the colours that compliment each other and the subject I’m aiming for. I was quite proud of the finished effect.

That is basically were I got the inspiration from for the Blue Ocean Necklace (nothing exciting, he he), but I can tell you that I find my inspiration in many different places. I even find them in colour palettes that I use with hexadecimal colour schemes. If I see something that looks beautiful to me, I always wonder if I’d be able to recreate it in a necklace and then I usually try it out.

I must add here that I’m not always successful. Sometimes God’s creations can not be recreated in handmade jewellery, but I do try my best.
