Color Challenge

My friend Brandi at Brandi Girl Blog issued a color challenge a while back. Click HERE for the specific post. I should have thought to post this earlier, but there's still time to enter. It's open through July 10.

I used seed beads and a simple herringbone weave to create my entries for the challenge. The first bracelet I made followed color palette #2 from Brandi's choices. Admittedly not a color combination I would have chosen on my own, while I worked on the piece I grew to love it!

Next, I chose color palette # 5. This one turned out too red/white/blue looking and I chose not to submit it for the challenge, hence no photos.

Lastly, I tackled color palette #1, which I like to call Mixed Lettuce.

This one, I love!!

Both are lovely but I'm with you - I really like the green one.

Brandi Hussey said...

These are gorgeous, Miss Vicki!! It's hard to choose, but I really love the tones of the first one.

Diane said...

They are both very nice. The mixed lettuce is my fave.

I am endlessly fascinated by you beaders and your ability to manipulate those little bits of glass into such cohesive and lovely designs. These are just beautiful, Vicki!

Alice said...

Gorgeous pieces! I love the colors in the first piece!!!!

So elegant! They are both beautiful, and I think the clean lines of the beadwork really let the colours be the star. Perfect!
