Being on top of today's color trends keeps your jewelry stylish and fresh. And there's no substitute for great color. You can be a brilliant designer, but if your color is weak, so is your jewelry. The Spring 2011 Color Report for Bead & Jewelry Designers
(based on Pantone's fashion color report of the season) connects beading to contemporary fashion forecasts and trends.
No one knows and explains color like Margie Deeb, author of The Beader's Guide to Color
. Her latest book, The Beader's Color Palette
, was named the Best Craft How-To Book of 2009 by the prestigious Library Journal.
If developing your color artistry is more your goal than fashion-forward thinking, download the Spring 2011 Color Report for Bead & Jewelry Designers
and get inspired by color harmonies you've never seen. You'll have 10 new ideas by page 5! And your work will take an exponential leap in creativity and originality.
23-page PDF pages of palettes, descriptions, photos, and color suggestions based on Pantone's fashion color report of the season. And revel in a gallery of jewelry inspired by the colors themselves.
Margie will guide you through this season's colors and show you how to use them. Color schemes that are daring, snappy, elegant, subtle, glamorous, and flamboyant... they're all in the Spring 2011 Color Report for Bead & Jewelry Designers.
Responses to the Color Report for Bead & Jewelry Designers
"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's very helpful knowing that what I make will work with what is in the stores for those months."
