Colors applied correctly to beaded jewelry can result in creating a very expressive piece of jewelry as well as can create specific emotions or moods. Color harmony basics knowledge will help any bead jewelry artisan succeed in making beaded jewelry that suddenly catches the eyes.
Color makes specific impressions and when you know what impression you want to make you can choose the most effective bead colors. By impression I am referring to things like creating specific moods such as the mood of “cool, refreshing, calming and/or tranquility.” The colors blue and green are said to create moods of tranquility. Blue and green are neighbors to each other on the color wheel. Colors which are neighbors to one another on the color wheel create harmony experienced by “most” people.
Another reason why blue and green are harmonious is that they are colors of nature especially in the summer months. The sky and ocean are hues of blue. The grass and most vegetation is green. These colors remind us of scenes of tranquility, carefree living and peace often experienced in summer months.
Blue and green then make good color choices for summer jewelry. Both blue and green have many different shades which provides even more flexibility when creating jewelry. Lime green beads goes well with indigo blue beads and for most people these colors create a refreshing feeling. Combine forest green beads with aquamarine blue beads for a peaceful, calm and elegant beaded necklace, bracelet, earrings, or a set of all three.
I yearn to be near the ocean and maybe at some point in time I will make it there. I don’t only want to visit, I want to live near an ocean easy within my reach. Emerald green beads combined with turquoise blue beads reminds me of the crispness of the ocean water.
Anytime you want to create the moods of peace, calmness, tranquility, use shade of green and blue beads together. They especially harmonize during the summer months or anywhere near an ocean. Wear shades of blue and green to freshen up last year’s summer outfits making them seem brand new for the current summer season.
