Clarus, Claritas…. Clarity.
Something about this bracelet just sang to me of clarity. The decisive blue, the definite blacks, the clear and uncomplicated touches of white. It’s not a blue that we play with often here at Tartooful – it’s too bold to play nicely with many of the other blues, and perhaps just a little predictable blended with purples? (Aren’t we spoiled – I’m sure
it’s gorgeous but we do love to see unexpected combinations.) This brilliant blue with crisp black and white feels very modern and… well, *clear*. It’s worth noting that on this composition there are hardly any blue beads. This strong of a blue doesn’t require very much to make its point. One could create something similar with only
three, brightly coloured beads. Imagine how clever to create a black and white, neutral envelope of a bracelet onto which one could add any three bright beads that caught one’s fancy! The same silvers, blacks and whites, plus three flame orange. Or remove the orange and add bright yellow instead. Or perhaps lime green. Oh – or hot pink! The possibilities dazzle.
