The use of contrasting colors as well as contrasting finishes such as using smooth and rough beads together creates interesting effects. For example use black and pale pink beads for a superb looking piece of bead jewelry.
Black and pale pink create an extreme strong dark-light contrast. Let us consider some of the reasons this dark-light color combination is so powerfully interesting.
Black is the dominant, strong and powerful color often associated with “hardness” and even masculinity as opposed to femininity. Pale pink is the color we more often associate with something soft, gentle, delicate, feminine and even submissive. Black is the mysterious hard color. Pink is the soft, extremely delicate and light color in a way that seems too perfect for this world.
Black and pale pink are also similar in that they both seem to be “aloof.” Black may represent individuality while pale pink is polite, refined, or respectable, often in an affected or ostentatious way. Both black and pale pink express luxury and something precious.
Creating bead jewelry using black and pale pink is gorgeous. Consider using a few black beads as accents to ostentatiously rich and luxurious looking rows of pink beads for a grand effect. Switch the beads around to accent rows of black beads with a few pale pink beads for the same kind of effect. Try stringing on a few pale pink beads for accents in a black necklace and see how impressive the combination really is. To give an impression of only using the most costly beads try stringing on low cost or reasonably cost pink glass beads with expensive black pearls.
Learning how to combine colors effectively helps to create more beautiful and expressive types of jewelry. Bead jewelry is well known as works of individual art expressions. Express your individuality by making, or buying and wearing beaded jewelry.
Experiment with dark-light colored bead jewelry pieces for a superb look every time. Black and pale pink are some of my favorite color combinations. You might see several pieces of bead jewelry on display from me in this dark-light combination of colors.
