What can I say, who knew the power of color could be so, um powerful. Need a shot of elevating, confidence-instilling pink in your creations but really not a ‘pink’ kind of gal? Let me break it down into a few manageable color palettes and show you how I have added in some of this potent honeysuckle to my designs.
This design uses the honeysuckle as an accent to the navy, melon and cream palette. The pink rhodonite beads are combined with peach aventurine and gunmetal findings.
The flower connectors are Arte Metal from Vintaj. The pendant is from Gaea and the navy blue disk beads are Humblebeads.
The pink beads above, left to right: Jubilee, Spirited Earth, Humblebeads, Diane Hawkey and Lynn Davis.

Very nice indeed. I like that colour. The beads in the top picture look great. And your necklaces too.

As far as pink goes, I do like Honeysuckle and your takes on this palette thing are marvelous. Thanks for the inspiration!
Enjoy the day!

I 'm not normally a 'pink' girl, but i love this colour, i've been thinking of some designs for which i can incorperate it, i think it will sit perfectly with the blue curacao colour they have picked out as well
I LOVE color!January 14, 2011 at 11:30 pm
This blog is sooo amazing. I was just thinking yesterday I wish what the 2011 color is going to be. This color is diffantly
1955'ish color when we used charco and gray with it. Now I am telling on myself smiles

Love-love-love Honeysuckle paired with orange. One of my favorite pairs. Honeysuckle, salmon, grey and charcoal pretty much rock as a group too.
