Capture the colors of the world with 220 distinctive palettes

• Priceless source of color inspiration

• Create 20 step-by-step projects

• Gallery of finished jewelry by the author and other artists

Confused by color? Don’t be. Get The Beader’s Color Palette, a priceless resource for beaders seeking inspiration for their jewelry designs. Author Margie Deeb presents 220 palettes inspired by five diverse themes, along with examples of finished jewelry and 20 step-by-step projects that interpret those themes. From the four elements (air, fire, water, and earth), to artists’ palettes (from ancient Egyptian through modern art), from world cultures (including Latin America, India and Tibet, Africa, the Middle East, and the Far East) to environments (rainforests, the Southwest, the Mediterranean), to the natural world (marine life, birds, insects)—these palettes capture the essence of countless human experiences and dreams. Beginners will love the basics section on off-loom stitches, loom weaving, and stringing; more advanced beaders will be inspired to take on the wide world of beautiful color.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Deeb (The Beader's Guide to Color) provides meticulously worked-out color palettes to capture the essence of period artworks or natural objects. Each palette indicates the proportion of dominant and secondary hues so that the finished piece will reflect the colors of the original period artwork or natural object.

The pictures in this book are very clear and sharp. It does give explanation on how to execute the various designes, but I wouldn't recommend this for a beginner. I actually bought this as a birthday gift for a friend who is an intermediate beader and she says its very useful for color scheme ideas. Great for the pictures.

This is by far the best jewelry making/beading book I've ever gotten. It shows how to pick out colors from artwork and put those colors to use in a beading project. The jewelry pieces are very inspirational! If you have trouble with colors, get this book!
