Today I was playing about with my Trollbeads blue sapphire… I was Experimenting with various other tones, and exploring to see what sorts of colour companions were possible. It’s a very soft grey-blue, a shade with which I play all the time – but in the 30 day challenge, there’s always the possibility of one more fresh idea!
I had never placed these three beads together, and I quite liked it! It was the kernel of an idea.
I pulled all my inky blues and all my lilacs and purples, and began to play. This was a super easy design to compose and balance… Some bracelets are so natural that afterwards one sort of shakes one’s head and think… “Well, DUH”. This was one of those bracelets. I had ample beads in each colour family, and truly, it “built itself”.
Entirely wearable… how can I never have made this bracelet?
I love the way the pale shimmering blues in the Aurora beads are accentuated and enhanced by these slate blues – but absolutely not overwhelmed. I find this colour combination easy and natural, but not boring or expected. I’m delighted with it, and am sure I will play with this pair of colour families again.
