I was fortunate to take some great beadweaving classes in 2010 from some very talented teachers; Jimmie Boatright of Atlanta Bead Market, as well as national artists, Sherry Serafini and Cynthia Rutledge. I’m always looking for opportunities to feed my knowledge base, and this year I’m going to concentrate on color, a critical design element I know very little about. Best of all – I can learn from home, thanks to Margie Deeb’s color theory classes on craftedu.com.
After my first few online sessions, I'm just beginning to understand the language of color and am training my eye to recognize values and temperatures. While I’m working up some monochromatic samples, here’s a treasury of powerful one-color palettes I culled from Etsy.
