Mojo Challenge Week 7: One Color

Sometimes too many choices can be stifling - causing a creative paralysis. So this week we are going to limit our choices to increase our creativity. It's about to get monochromatic up in here!

Your Assignment:

Make a piece of jewelry with just one color, varying to value (light & darkness), shape and texture for interest. 

Tips for Working with Just One Color:
Start this assignment at your bead boxes, gathering up variations of one oclor to work into a design. Find beads that are different in shape and size, go for interesting textures. You can use texture in the beads or mix in wire or fibers.

Check out this awesome article on Making Your Monochromatic Magnificent by color guru Margie Deebs and the article from Brandi Hussey on the Color of Metal is required homework for this week!  You'll notice in each of my examples below I used metal as a contrasting color for my designs.
