Art Elements Monthly Theme: White

This months Art Elements Theme is based upon using white in your work. When I think of white, it tends to be in a base color sort of path. It is something to give definition, light, a brightness behind the color.

Peyote Fan Earrings in Clear, Silver Lined, and AB finished with white fireline and sterling silver findings.
I love any bead with the AB finish that reflects a bit of color.

Earlier this month when I was making the blog post for the Linda Genaw’s Peyote Fan Earrings over on Art Elements Blog, I made sure to make up a pair that would fit into our white theme. Here are some other items from around my studio (holidays and both of my kids birthdays are in December, so my time got away from me).

Marsha Neal Studio White Crescent Pendant with simple chain necklace.
Silver and White are so elegant together.
Marsha Neal Studio Small Ceramic Seed Pod Collector in White Glaze (over white clay body).
White glaze can pop or make the items it is next to pop.
Marsha Neal Studio Chocolate Stoneware Clay with Rustic White glaze.
White can show off the details.
Capturing some early morning frost.
White reminds me of cold and winter.

I hope you have fun hopping around to see what these other wonderful artists came up with for this months theme! And please stop by the Art Elements Blog for details on our next theme.

    Beautiful pieces, all of them!
    The crescent necklace may be simple, but it doesn’t need any more to shine with the fine details in the crescent.

    This challenge really makes me appreciate white a lot more!
