Spring/Summer 2008 Color Report for Bead & Jewelry Designers (PDF)
The Color Report for Bead Artists will inspire you. It'll expand what you can create with beads - or any medium - by introducing you to color combinations you've never used or even seen before. "Croissant" and "Snorkel Blue" with a dash of "Daquiri Green"... what is this, a brunch menu on a cruise?!
A 15-page PDF containing over 40 palettes, descriptions, photos, gemstone and Delica bead suggestions, and ideas based on Pantone's fashion color report of the season.
You already know how fun it is to create. And one of the most fun aspects is color: using new colors and harmonies. If you're like me, your beadwork soars when you're challenged and inspired. And it becomes exponentially more fun. ("Pink Mist" never looked so good on "Cantaloupe"!)
It thrills me to work with colors I've never seen or tried. Watching how the hues interact with each other and how I interact with them gives me such joy. And I want to learn more, go further, reach higher and create more.
Join me in exploring the exciting new colors of the season. I'll show you how to work "Rococco Red," "Silver Gray," and "Spring Crocus" into a palette that will spin your color wheel off its axis!
Some of you were generous in letting me know how the Color Report for Bead Artists helped you. Read some of the feedback:
"I really like the color report - particularly because there are colors that I probably would not have considered or noticed and this gives new directions to travel. I also REALLY appreciated the listing of the gemstones."
- Kathy L.
"Very helpful. I tend to work in certain palettes over and over again, but seeing a different palette helps me move out of my comfort zone."
- Susan K.
"I appreciated the fact that you mentioned your initial reaction to some of the Pantone colors for this season and yet after exploring them, your reaction to them changed. It reminds me to be open to colors I might not usually consider for jewelry (or wearing)."
- Rosalynn B.
"I know I will not care for every season's colors but The Color Report for Bead Artists still gives me an idea of what to look for when designing for the next season. It is very helpful knowing that what I make will work with what is in the stores for those months."
