Let's talk about color

Over the past two weeks we have had a lot of customers ask us how we come up with color.  The simplified answer is that it is all around us. 

Find you favorite photograph/painting; sit in your favorite part of the garden; pull your favorite shirt out of the closet.  Take a long, close look at the colors.  Now, look at the proportion of colors.  For instance, right now I love my garden.  There are several shades of green and just a riot of different purples... This was the inspiration for our Fantasy Flower Cuff!

If you need more help, we are always here for you.  Also consider the Beaders Color Pallet by Margie Deeb.  It has really opened my eyes to how I look at things.  Plus, on the right side of our blog we have a random color selector.  If you do not like what popped up, the click on "another" and find one that speaks to you.

Happy Beading!
