Stunning yellow is a fabulous color for any spring design. It brings to mind the season’s first daisies, baby chicks, and fondant candy. Starting with some opaque dark yellow seed beads, I searched for just the right colors to make a perfect eggy trio. I added sweet and pretty patriot blue rainbow seed beads - the color of robin’s eggs and cloudless skies. To really add a note of outdoor warmth, I finished Egg Hunt with opaque chartreuse green pinch beads.
Next I went with a garden inspired palette, starting with some emerald green Swarovski Elements ovals. Soft pearl cream the color of eggshells provides an ideal background for dark green. To add a little more of a spring vibe to this elegant combination, I finished Purple Pysanky with eggplant colored seed beads in cobalt rainbow. The shiny finish of the seed beads pairs really well with the sparkle of the crystals.
Preferring the candy colored approach, I started the final palette with lovely turquoise blue Czech glass drops. Adding some lustered orange seed beads brings out just a hint of soft lavender in the drops. For the perfect contrast, I added lovely, light-filled transparent magatamas in lemon-lime AB to complete this Jelly Bean palette.
What color combinations do you like to use for spring cheer?
