December bead soup palette: part two

As I mentioned in part one, this month's colour inspiration/moodboard is a bit different what with beads being added to it every week leading up to christmas when it will be complete.

This week, I didn't add new colours as much as I just added new hues and a different finish, mixing shiny with the matte metallics of the first week. Mixing finishes and surface effects (like celsian and lumi brown here) adds depth and interest to a simple bead combo. So if you want to make something using just a couple of colours, focusing on hues and finishes can be a great way to make it less flat and boring.

You might recognize the added beads from this post, by the way.

  1. Lovely colour mix. Not the traditional Xmas colours...I appreciate that. Kind of fed up with red and green just now. I love the lover beads. You always seem to find the most beautiful Czech beads. The ordinary ones are also beautiful, though.


A few words can mean so much. Thank you for taking the time to comment!
