So far this month we’ve had three sets of Bead Color Trios, which is definitely a record. Over the years, the concept behind these color experiments has evolved and changed, which means there are so many more options for trying on different beads. When the segment began, I always started with a simple inspiration such as Neapolitan ice cream or the variations on primary colors, then created three different palettes with their own unique themes.
As my bead stash was a lot smaller back then, and I was just getting the hang of things, I was only creating one set of trios per month. This gave me a lot more time to play around with the concepts, and I used to arrange the beads into shapes that also represented the themes that went with them. It wasn’t until I was thinking about how far the concept has come that I remembered these little bead scenes.
Today Bead Color Trios has so many variations. My favorite is probably the accent bead start, which always gives me new ideas on how to use items in my stash. And I always look forward to mixing and matching Pantone colors in the spring and fall.
Do you have a favorite method for trying out new bead combinations?
