It's been an eventful couple of months. There have been two deaths in my family, two births in my family, one pregnancy announcement, a lot of travel, a lot of work, and the dissolution of a friendship which had become unbalanced and somewhat toxic.
When things get a little bit crazy, I tend to retreat inward. The introversion and introspection that happens with me colors my work, naturally.
So I have been working with a lot of grey these last few weeks. The color grey for me brings to mind soft wool, cool days, quiet reflection, and the companionship of animals. It's also a professional color - clean and somewhat aloof.
Since it's spring, I've been pairing grey with lighter, more cheerful colors like peach, aqua, amethyst, pink and green. The result is a kind of subtle balance of sweet and somber - which kind of goes along with this year's fashion color palette as well.
For me, the best grey glass colors are in the CiM line - Adamantium for the opaque, layered with transparents such as Raindrop, Journey and Twilight.
I love grey when I want to slow down and really focus on things, and I adore the way it makes the other colors stand out without being too fussy. It's my favorite neutral right now. :)
