Today is a fresh colour combination for me, and one I will certainly create again after the challenge is over! I was inspired to try this sage green and pink combination by the arrival of a “Blue Desert” at the gallery which contained both colours, fading gracefully from one to the other around its glass. I loved the way the two
colours played together, and made up an entire bracelet of stock beads to celebrate it. It was so pretty that I just had to go to my own bead tray to see if I could create a bracelet for myself in a similar palette. I don’t know why I had never done this before… it’s one of those bracelets that practically “built itself”, coming together in a matter of minutes.
Note that two of these center beads were custom made beads, by Georgina of Trollbeads Canada… the celadon green and gold bead is her most recent creation, and I am so excited to include it in my collection. Those of you who are awaiting your own beads by mail, we just received them and will be posting today and tomorrow!
Clockwise from clasp: “Basic Double Lobster clasp”, “Pink Prism”, “Magical Lamp”, “Etruscan” (retired), “Limited Edition Kimono Series”, “Sparrow” (retired), “Azure Bubbles”, “Unique”, “Zanzibar” (retired), “Blue Desert”, “Unique”, “Unique”, “Ball of Yarn”, “Rose Quartz”, “Azure Bubbles”, “Heart”, “Pink Desert”, “Bee on Hive” (retired), “Deep Bubbles” (retired), “Rosa Pearl”.
Such a gentle and soothing palette, and such a lovely way to wear pink without it feeling too “girly”! Pink delights me, but I avoid it if it feels to flighty and silly. Somehow the natural complement of green settles the pink and makes it so wearable for me.
