Color Me Stylish

A bright tribute to all things colorful and creative, this beautifully crafted necklace was made using an ancient metalworking technique. Artist Christine Schmidt etches tiny crevices in the gilded 22k pendant. The crevices are then filled with a richly pigmented paste which, once fired in the kiln, transforms into deep hues of hard enamel. The result is a charming color wheel that hangs from a long, delicate chain—perfect for art enthusiasts and color lovers alike. Made in San Francisco.

“I make things that I want. I have an idea and I figure out how to make it.”

Christine Schmidt's art career began in primary school when she won a bike in the local grocer's coloring contest (it was red and had ten whole speeds!) After a youth spent on the plains of Kansas City and art school in Washington D.C., she and her boyfriend, Evan, moved west to a little place perched atop windy Bernal Hill in San Francisco. Fueled by too much black tea and public radio shows, she spent nights creating hand-printed cards and gifts. Seeking out local suppliers and working with fine, earth-loving materials, she began honing her line of wares. In 2007, after steeling her nerves, Christine took a box of her goods to some local stores...they placed orders, and Yellow Owl Workshop was born.

Christine's workshop now bustles with a team of hard-working ladies in a sunny Mission district studio. Though it's grown, the workshop's original values of attention to detail, ecological awareness, and premium, American-made materials are evident in every product.

A SAD LOSS

I had to buy a longer chain for it ... And affixed it exactly as it came. Somehow after three months, today the pendant fell off. I just had a third grader tell me this morning how much she liked it, and now it's gone. Kudos to my husband for picking a great gift, it was really special, and will need to be replaced soon!

I would buy again if it had old, longer chain

I've purchased this necklace twice. The first time, it came with a much longer chain which my wife loved. Wore it everyday. Then it broke. Ordered a new one and my wife and I were both disappointed to see the chain is about half the size it used to be. It''s the type of necklace that wears better long, so it's unfortunate.

UNIQUE; PERFECT FOR AN ARTIST

I AM AN ARTIST AND COULDN'T RESIST. THE PENDANT APPEARS TO BE NICELY MADE AND OF GOOD QUALITY. WHEN IT ARRIVED, THE CHAIN WAS HOPELESSLY TANGLED, SO IT TOOK ME ALMOST AN HOUR TO UNTANGLE IT. MY ONLY DISAPPOINTMENT IS THAT IT REALLY NEEDS TO BE ON A LONGER CHAIN TO DANGLE PROPERLY. IT SIMPLY IS TOO SHORT AND ENDS UP LANDING AT THE NECKLINE OF MANY ARTICLES OF CLOTHING.

More great things about this necklace are the price is very reasonable and the packaging is unique and fun. Also, it works to " jazz up" my standard uniform of tshirt & jeans. Looks cool.

Great gift for artsy friends, and for myself

I'll wear the necklace for fun, and especially at quilt gatherings. Bought 6 to also give some to quilting friends accompanying me on a quilting cruise. Thought it would be fun to identify us as a group within the 60+ fellow-quilter passengers. Originally bought a lower-priced version from another vendor, but the product was so cheap and ugly I threw them all away, and ordered this instead. GREAT decision.

I love the colorwheel necklace, except the length -too short

Chain is so short I had to re-route it through the piece, and now it does not hang right

Adorable style, chain is too short

I'll need to find a longer chain that I can slipknot in order to wear this. Because of the way the chain is attached to the charm without hardware, you lose about a half inch. For me, that means the difference between pendant and choker and it's not as comfortable as I would have liked. I do want to wear it so I will hit up my crafter friends for a longer chain so it rests on my collarbone better.
