When I teach a beading, or art some one always asks the question, " Where do you get your color combinations?" I go through my spiel of color and color combinations. Then I tell them when ever color is a blank or you are being challenged with it. Go out side. Simply step out your back door, close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and then look around you. Colors will come to you in every shade and value. Even when I lived in the deep snow covered mountains of North ID there was color in all of that white. So does where you live effect the colors in your art? It certainly does. For me living on the Oregon cost for the past year my color pallet has changed dramatically. Here is a sample. "Sea Mist Bracelet" sold the day I finished it.

Bead with Honor and Integrity


  1. It's absolutely lovely! Not surprising that it sold quickly. Brown and blue (and their variations) are one of my favourite colour combinations.

  2. Exquisite!!! Love ur work.. I am soo happy to meet so many wonderful people like you..I feel enriched. :)
