Margie Deeb, Author of the Color Report for Bead Artists and color expert has written in her "Margie's Muse" about Lucite Green this month. In her opinion, she would love for it to be Spring's color of 2009.
And personally, I would have to agree with her. Not only do I love the color, but also she used my lampwork fish necklace to illustrate it. (Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing it. It's not on my website)
Margie's latest publication, The Spring Summer 2009 Color Report for Bead Artists, shows Panetone's (the world reknowned authority on color) 10 chosen colors for the season. Margie takes these industry colors and shows you how to use them in different palettes, combinations and percentages. What a difference it makes!
Margie includes lots of beaded jewelry and pieces to show the reader how the combinations and amounts of each color look in actual pieces that were made by her readers. I don't know about you, but that sure helps me a lot.
And here's one more tip. Margie has year's of color information available for FREE in pdf form on her website through her Margie's Muse and she also does podcasts. Just go here to download the pdf's. You'll learn so much. I took a day long class from Margie and learned so much about the choices I was making unconsciously, and how to improve and add variety to what my natural taste is. I'm a big fan.
And if you're interested in which glass I used to achieve this Lucite Green color, it was Check Glass's 53122 Mint Green which is COE 102. I love this color. It says fresh and happy to me. I pair it with aqua for a beachy look.
