Margie Deeb's Spring/Summer 2012 Color Report for Bead and Jewelry Designers by Jamie Hogsett12:08 PM
Have you had a chance to get Margie Deeb's Spring/Summer 2012 Color Report yet? As always, Margie did a beautiful job putting it together. Contributing to Margie's reports are a great treat for me. It's not being able to show you the projects for so long that's a challenge!
The first of my two necklaces in this issue is an homage to the color Cockatoo. It was made with Peruvian opal, aquamarine, and Antique Brass beading wire from Soft Flex Company; a bird toggle clasp from Green Girl Studios, and a lovely bird's nest polymer clay pendant from Humblebeads.
Necklace number two is a combination of the colors Starfish and Driftwood. They're two colors that I thought would be a challenge, but am completely in love with now! Materials for this necklace consist of Bronze beading wire and septarium stones from Soft Flex Company; brass toggle and findings from Vintaj Natural Brass, two ceramic pendants from Earthenwood Studio, a polymer clay pendant from Humblebeads, Kazuri rounds from Antelope Beads, and many random pressed-glass, wood, and seed beads from my stash.
There are many gorgeous pieces in the Color Report along with a wealth of knowledge from Margie. Check it out and you'll be an expert on the spring color trends in no time!
