Colour of the Month – Cobalt Blue

I hope you have enjoyed the posts about Cobalt so far!  Just to recap:

And this week’s post is all about contrasting colours.  Opposite cobalt on the colour wheel is a yellowy-orangey colour.  I tried making beads with this colour glass, but when I put them with the blue beads, it just looked too odd.  So, I tried a slightly different shade of yellow, a mustardy colour, and I think the result is a lot more pleasing.

The pictures below will take you to my online shop.  There have been a few changes in the shop, which I will explain quickly here, and will then do a post about the changes in more detail.  Essentially, I am now using my website shop as a place to buy the Colour of the Month ranges of jewellery.  The items will be listed as one-off pieces.  All other jewellery (recycled and Italian glass), will still be available on Etsy.

Next week I will share some cute earrings that will work with all of the necklaces I have made.
