Thought I’d do another color gradient.
There’s a few specific things I find interesting about this. The first is that the color Delica calls medium coral (3rd stripe from the left on the left-hand earring) is actually different enough from light coral (5th stripe) that I could put silk medium peach in between – and possibly one or two other color shades as well. Hmm. This is just me, but I don’t think I’d trust the Delica color-makers to paint my house….
The second is that I was originally going to border the earrings with a more metallic color – gold, copper, or mica, for example. But none of them seemed to fit. Silver-lined light blue, though, was metallic in effect, nicely balanced the pinks and oranges, and went fine with the opaque shell. Didn’t expect that. 🙂
Third… well, for this set, I think I just like the effect of different finishes along with different hues on the beads. It gives more of a “sky gradation of color” to me.
