I was inspired by the intense green of the lush growth along the riverside. Even the river looked green. I was also struck by the fact that despite the many shades of green, most of it was some variation of blue-green.
I spent nearly 2 hours wandering around and photographing everything. When I returned home, I was anxious to express my impressions through some jewelry designs.
I chose some of my own polymer clay charms on which I have layered many shades of blue-green, with small hints of other colors. I added patina'ed copper discs to pick up the colors of the tree bark and I wrapped them all together with patina'ed copper wire.
