Please Note! International Orders - please order through my Etsy Shop
Come join me on a journey
from inspiration... to color relationship... to bead soup palette...
to freeform expression in beads!

Working with color is exhilarating! And what better way to play with color than in making bead soups and incorporating them in freeform beadweaving projects? Just as a painter mixes different pigments on her palette, you will learn how to make bead soups with depth and movement. I will show you how I go from color inspirations to defining the color relationship using the color wheels and templates included in the back of the book, to creating a palette of beads. The numerous freeform projects in BEADED COLORWAYS will give you countless ways to use these beautiful mixes including color flow techniques that will show you how to seamlessly blend from one color to the next.
Take a peek inside...

In the first part of the book, I share insights and techniques in working with color to help you gain color confidence. There is even a package at the back with 2 color wheels and 6 templates to help you enhance your color palettes! Follow along with me as I go from inspiration to color wheel relationship to creating bead soups with depth and movement.
