This necklace is a variation in the medium used on the ‘colours of life’ necklace.
Patricia’s observation on colors through the human life. To her eyes, colors are corresponding to a period of time in our life, like pastels will be associated with babies. A baby who grow turning the colors more pigmented, brighter & vivid. Colors which represent children and their energy. The older and wiser we grow, the more unsaturated the colors becomes ( black are added to the tones), making them deeper, an ‘adult color’. Going on to the senior age, colors fades like a bouquet of vivid roses, which slowly is becoming all tints of beige and sanded-white before the petals started to fall. White is the end, white is the beginning. The circle of life – the circle of colors.
