A Colorful Find!

I have been looking for a color inspiration book for years.
Now I know there are a ton of color books on the market but none of them were right for my needs.
Then, one day on a trip to Borders Books, while doing my usual thumbing through the bead/craft section I stumbled on The Beader's Color Palette.
It spoke to me but I wasn't ready to rush into purchasing it.
I left and for the next month or so I kept thinking about that fact I couldn't get it out of my mind.
I went back, got it and rushed home to start reading.

I have only had it for a couple of weeks but it has already helped me with several projects not even related to jewelry creation.

I highly recommend it for anyone that could use some help or just some inspiration with using color in their projects.

From their website:
The Beader’s Color Palette: 20 Creative Projects and 220 Inspired Combinations for Beaded and Gemstone Jewelry opens the door to worlds of color inspiration. Gather colors from around the planet and to create stunning color schemes for beaded creations. Gorgeous beaded jewelry illustrating 220 specific palettes for glass and gemstone beads make The Beader’s Color Palette a coffee table book of inspiration for color lovers working in every medium. Includes detailed instructions for stringing, finishing, looming, and off-loom stitches.

Thanks for drawing my attention to this book. I will definitely look into it. Or else I'll just make everything black :-)
