In this summer heat we have been having, I am dreaming of fall and winter. So naturally I start looking at the fashion forecast for fall and holiday colors. I then pour through my beads and make a collection of them to work off of for the upcoming season.
I started with the navy and pink from the netting bracelet and earrings that I just made. I have started making leaves from the various sized seed beads that I have, but I really missed making my beaded bangles. So last Monday night I pulled color rages from my collection of delicas, poured them into my largest palette and decided to just use all the colors. I wasn't in the mood to graph something out, so I started with small stripes and alternated them.
It has also gotten me thinking about what colors to use and some future bangles to graph out. I may even visit some old patterns with these fresh colors.
And of course it always feels good when you get a magazine in the mail and the colors on the front cover about-match what I'm working on! Thanks Pottery Barn!
