Funny story, one of the first art beads I ever bought, back before I ever knew what an art bead was, was one of Heather Powers’ urchin beads. I was fascinated with how she took a humble medium, polymer clay, and turned into art (maybe that’s where she came up with the name Humblebeads? I’ll have to ask her). The textures and shapes and sheer volume of what she can create amazes me. As does, you guessed it, Heather’s color choices.
I’m really taken in with the colors artists choose in their bodies of work, and Heather’s color choices are no exception. I think they’re fantastic, and would instantly bring a ton of color to a necklace or any jewelry design. Every bead she has in her shop would be an awesome jumping off point, so I picked out a few favorites and whipped up these color palettes.
I know Heather’s got a ton of fans out there who love and use her beads, so tell me: what’s your favorite Humblebead you’ve ever bought?
