Cobalt & Yellow
I pinned the image above a few months ago (original source is unknown). The yellow and cobalt colour combination is PERFECT for summer. Even as I thought about adding a similar outfit to my wardrobe I was already wondering what jewellery pieces I could make with yellow, cobalt, white and translucent clay.
This week, I started playing with the colours. I created a pretty polymer clay cane, then opted to distort it by running the sliced circles back through the pasta machine on a number 4 setting and spacing the colour design out on a thin translucent sheet.
It was one of those days where I am working it out as I go, changing my mind.. changing it again.. The end result was a layered clay design. Once I was happy with thickness and placement of each layer, I rolled the whole thing gently to lay everything flat before cutting a variety of shapes and sizes.
- Top: Stretched cane in cobalt, yellow, and white, spaced out for an abstract look
- Next: Thinly rolled translucent sheet

- Base: Thinly rolled cobalt blue with sparkle effect
I made a variety of one-off pieces with the colour design, some of which are available in the shop. The collage below shows a pair of earrings and bracelet made from a combination of different chips (flat pendant shapes), beads and hollow shells made in the same colour combination.
