Fall/Winter 2008 Color Report for Bead & Jewelry Designers (PDF)
The Fall/Winter 2008 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. When did you last combine "Shitake" with "Withered Rose"? Or sprinkle a dash of "Aurora Red" in your "Shady Glade?
A 22-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. And new to this report: a "Colors In Context" section that illustrates 10 of the suggested color palettes used in the same design to help you visualize the palette at work.
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.
Join me in exploring the exciting new colors of the season. I'll show you how to work "Twilight Blue," "Royal Lilac," and "Burnt Orange" into a palette that will spin your color wheel off its axis!
Responses to the Spring/Summer 2008 Color Report for Bead Artists
"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."
