Challenge of Color

I’m quite excited to participate in my first jewelry challenge. Erin and Brandi have hosted these color challenges twice before and I was thrilled to see I found their blogs just as this year’s started.

Every participant receives two pallets and will be crafting an accessory with one or both color schemes. What a fab idea! I’ve been eagerly awaiting my colors and was thrilled to receive these two GORGEOUS palettes from the US Geological Survey’s satellite image gallery:

The so-called Richat Structure is a geological formation in the Maur Adrar Desert in the African country of Mauritania. Although it resembles an impact crater, the Richat Structure formed when a volcanic dome hardened and gradually eroded, exposing the onion-like layers of rock.

Named after the ancient Mayan Province of Kimpech, the state of Campeche comprises much of the western half of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Rivers in southern Campeche drain into the immense Terminos Lagoon, the entrance to which is protected by a long barrier island, Isla Del Carmen.

What a beautiful planet we live on! So I’ll get cracking on those and will reveal my projects here on November 30th.
