Color!

I mentioned having the opportunity to see Margie Deeb speak this past weekend at the Bead Society of San Diego County.



I thoroughly enjoyed the experience as well as the opportunity to spend some time with Margie. I've always worked rather intuitively with color, but I am ready to delve into some more serious learning. And what better way then with Margie's books, Color reports, Podcasts, Blogposts and more, all on color! Where else can you get that kind of color education. Margie is also offering color courses on CraftEdu, an online learning forum.

Margie Deeb, a color expert, is the first artist /author to publish
books on color specifically addressing the challenges presented by
working with beads. Her books include the popular The Beader’s Guide
to Color
and The Beader’s Color Palette, which the Library Journal
voted the Best Craft How-To book of 2009



I was fortunate to have 3 of my pieces published in the Beaders Color Pallette. Here is a picture of Victoria.



Margie's background as a graphic artist serves her well. All of her publications are beautifully put together.

I look forward to more learning about color and beadwork!

Margie is a wonderful presenter and teacher. I enjoyed her visit to Toronto last November.

I hope to hear Margie speak sometime. Color is such an interesting subject, and sometimes so hard to make work.

Lucky dog. I've been doing a series on my blog called Margie and Me and I've been picking a color palette each week from her book and challenging myself to make something new from it. I'm loving it and stretching myself in a million new ways.
