Unusual Source of Inspiration

The colours of these baskets go so well together. They are unusual colours to put together but it really works. Often when making earrings or necklaces, we select various beads and play around with them, trying one colour and shape against another, until a pleasing combination is arrived at. It is a challenge though, as two colours may work well together but then add a different coloured stone and it will totally change how the other two look. With necklaces we have to use a large number of coloured stones and it can be a bit of a challenge to get them to work together. It is great fun to do though and quite satisfying when you come up with a colour combination that is really effective.
