Inspired by InStyle

Inspired by InStyle Magazine
I am inspired by lots of things for my fashion and interior design projects.  One other passion I have is making jewelry.  I started back in 2000 when I was planning my wedding and I have been doing it ever since.

I find lots of my inspiration for color pallets for my jewelry, fashion and design comes from magazines.

My most current inspiration has been the monthly InStyle color crash course section in the magazine.

Here is the January 2012 color crash course inspiration for a necklace using Seafoam, Mint, Ocean blue, sand and coral crystals.        

Here is my my necklace using those colors.  Since I am so inspired by InStyle I decided to write in and share my note to the "Inspired by InStyle" section in the magazine.

 I am in the May 2012 addition in the Inspired by InStyle section.  It was great to see my short note in the magazine.

Peacock Blue inspiration
Here is the December 2011 InStyle color crash course.  

Peacock blue is a great color and they recommend pairing it with Charcoal, silver, eggplant and Cinnabar for fun.

Here is the necklace I created with the Peacock colors.

Grape Inspiration
In February 2012 InStyle Grape was the new color that inspired me.

They recommend pairing the following colors with grape:
  • Coral red
  • Teal
  • Ivory
  • Yellow for fun

Here is the necklace I created with the grape colors from InStyle.

Peach Inspiration
In April 2012 InStyle magazine the color of the month was Peach.

They recommend paring it up with the following colors:

  • Coral
  • Silver
  • Champagne
  • Lavender for fun

Here is my necklace using the Peach inspired colors from InStyle.

I will be adding all of these to my site snap*string if anyone wants to purchase them.

You never know where your next inspiration will come from and I love using magazines for that.  You can use the tips for fashion, home design and so much more.

The May InStyle color this month is Lemon so that will be fun to create a great bright spring necklace.

What inspires your design and fashion?  I would love to hear your ideas and thoughts.
