Mermaid Jewelry – The Importance of Color

One of the great advantages of creating resin mermaid jewelry, is the ability to color the resin. But, this ability can be a challenge or a headache. I am a perfectionist, and can not be satisfied until the color is perfect. I feel that color can make or break a design. No matter how wonderful the form and fit of a piece, if the color is not perfect, I am not happy with the piece. These imperfect castings are stored in a box labeled “Casting Misfits”. I sometimes sift through this box, looking for ideas, remembering all my color blunders. Wondering to myself, “what was I thinking when I cast that awful color?”

Color is a big part of my design process. I can be out shopping or working in my garden, when I see a color that inspires me. I just have to try and reproduce that color in my studio. Or a particular color will inspire a new design. Color is one of the most important elements of my mermaid jewelry design. I believe that if the color does not catch your eye, the design will not sell.

Here is an example of one of my mermaid jewelry pieces in my top selling color. It’s not so much a color, as a color effect. I know that the color is perfect, when I can not resist the urge to grab my camera, and start taking photos.
