I first find the violet purple as the purple closest to my amethyst beads. I see that the relationship between colors is the one that I want.
I picked my seed beads from a big storage bin. I dug around and took out tubes of beads for about an hour. Then I settled on these beads.
I felt pretty good about my selections. But then I started to get some second thoughts. I wished that I had a lighter purple. Maybe the blue green are more blue than green. So decided to get a second opinion.
I went to Pinterest and found two color palettes that reflected the mood I wanted.
Looking at them, I decided that I like what I picked out and I'm sticking with it. Here is the picture of the finished necklace and then we can all decide.
I just thought I would share this process with you. I am having a bunch of fun experimenting with color.
Here are too other pieces that I used the same process on.
Let me know if you have any tips or tricks that you use.
Let's go be colorful today.
