Color inspiration

I recently mentioned to a friend of mine how I have been battling a bit of a creative block. He suggested a color palette for me to work with, to help break out of this slump. Below is a cellphone picture he sent me with two possible choices. I chose the bottom one and got to work pulling beads out in those matching colors.

Before I knew it, I picked the beads and had my design laid out, ready to be made. I was so thrilled to have a finished piece! The first in a few weeks. It really pays to have great, artistic friends to help you out :)

This bracelet is created using gold and blue vintage lucite beads, purple and silver glass beads, brass washers and an upcycled key charm.

Have you ever had a friend help get you out of a creative slump? How do you help yourself to find inspiration when there is no one around?

    Anyway, your bracelet turned out beautifully. Your mix of silver and brass worked out much better than I would have imagined. Very cool.
