Trollbeads Challenge Day 11

IMG_1867

After a few years of practicing the creative exercise of the Challenge, I’ve found a few composition themes to be particularly interesting… in some cases they are simply designs that I find difficult – such as all silvers, or asymmetrical.  Each year they become a little easier to achieve, and that’s very encouraging!  In other cases certain design challenged show me the changes that have occurred in the elements of my collection over the previous twelve months, which is a good measure of how my tastes shift from year to year.

This ombre design is one that I have explored in the past, and I find it interesting to see the changes that have taken place since last year.  This year’s version of my ombre bracelet gently transitions from softest golden peach, through pink and bronze into plum and finally completes at a delicious claret.

Some beads that were key in previous versions are no longer a part of the design.  Other beads have joined the collection since last May, and are now glowing here.  It’s different from last year, but I like it just as well.  It’s such an interesting exercise to see – really *see* the colours and how they relate to each other.
