Winter Sky Inspiration
Updated: Aug 7, 2019
I *love* clouds and the sky, and I recently realized the extent of my obsession when I began undertaking a massive project: labeling and organizing all my digital images. Wow...I have so many sky pictures! Sunrises, sunsets, clouds! These photos have been inspiring new jewelry designs (more about that later in this post).
Like I mentioned in my post about connecting to nature in the winter, the cold, dark months of the year are a great time to catch the sunset and/or sunrise, but also to capture other views of the winter sky. One specific trend began to pop out: the stark branches of bare trees against a bright winter sky. This is what I’m talking about.
There is something about the dark, angular elements of the branches, against the soft, round backdrop of the sky. Both are organic, but in such different ways.
I also found some beautiful winter sunset photos, including these two:
The photos of sunset, and the sunset in real life, have felt very inspiring to me lately, and I've created a new necklace that is specifically inspired by the color palettes of winter sunsets. Aquamarine, citrine, and rose quartz are the stars of this delicate bar necklace, now on Etsy, just in time for Valentine’s day!
More color palette jewelry will be coming soon!
