Choosing Glass Beads Color For Jewelry Making
Wednesday, June 23, 2010
Are you starting a glass beads jewelry making project but you’re not too decided which of the colors to choose? It can be quite overwhelming because of the many choices you have. The colors are so varied you will sometimes feel like just getting them all. But take note that even with just a few of the basic beading colors, you can already make magnificent pieces.

Begin with the end in mind.

For beginners, it's easy to get lost in the details of beading. You have to know how to take a step back when picking up the colors for your jewelry project. Consider the emotions that you would like to convey, and the clothes you want to match them up with. If you are looking to make an elegant and classy impression, choose the rich, dark, and warm colors of glass beads for additional impact. If you’d like to convey a more playful spirit, consider more bright colors to let your personality shine through.

Let bead patterns become your guide.

Patterns are there to help you in your jewelry bead making project. But be flexible enough to follow your instinct should the pattern prove to be boring for you. Patterns are just there to help you out and show you the way. They are not exactly rules that you have to strictly follow.

You can always turn back the clock on color.

One of the best things when it comes to making your own glass beads jewelry is that you can never go wrong. Whatever colors and shapes and designs you make, they will always come out creative and beautiful. You can always correct a style when you’re not feeling happy with it, until you achieve that piece of design you feel happy with. Always trust your judgment and enjoy the process.
