Some folks just have an innate sense of color. I think such is the case for Barb, who I first met last year at BeadFest and again at Beads of Colour in Dundas. Barb showed me this exquisite bracelet which takes it's color cues from the beautiful lampwork bead featured at it's center.
It's a pallette different then my ususal matte and shiny metallics, or my bright fun colors. It is one I am definitely drawn to, and I need to spend some time examining how I might move in that direction.
I think help is at hand since I just came across Margie Deeb's '7 Strategies for Extracting Pallettes' I haven't had a look yet, but each of Margie's color publications has a lot to offer.
Thanks to Barb for letting me photo her beautiful piece!
