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? Dont be. Get The Beaders 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.

Margie Deeb hits a home run with The Beader's Color Palette, a lush 192 page book full of inspiration, color palettes and jewelry projects. The book opens with an introduction followed by brief sections on how to read the palettes and creating palettes. Margie then jumps right into five gorgeous chapters entitled, The Elements, Artists' Historical Palettes, Cultures of Our World, This Gorgeous Planet, Living Color. The book ends with a chapter on inspiration and techniques including a gallery full of lovely artisan made beaded jewelry. The jewelry projects are rated which I found very helpful. Margie includes the inventory/color number of the Delica seed beads used in the projects. If you're looking to create the jewelry exactly as Margie has written them, this is just the information you'll need to make an exact replica. If you just like a particular color, you'll have the inventory number so you can get the beads in the color you desire, a detail not always available in a jewelry project book.

Lovely pictures, great information, gorgeous color palettes, what more can a beader want?
