I was trying to get a gradient in blue silk colors.
Part of the problem being there just aren’t a lot of silk colors. And the dark blue I have is at least two shades darker than I would have liked.
I could have gone for other beads in shades of blue in between, and maybe I should have. But that would have interrupted the finish of silks. As it was I had to resort to a color-lined pale blue to round out the stripes. Sigh.
At least they look interesting?
