Secret Bead Along – Summer 2017 Color Selection!

Hey, everyone! You may remember last summer I participated in Jean Power’s Secret Bead Along and made this fantastic necklace. I’ve decided to play along again and picked out my beads based on Jean’s requirements list.


She listed the beads needed along with suggestions about which ones should match or contrast. I had a hard time deciding what to use, but then I saw an INGENIOUS chart on Facebook that The Indecisive Beader created where she graphed out how the beads were going to interact. It was so smart and I loved the idea so much that I made my own version on my laptop.

I’m working with garnet, lavender, and soft greens because I thought my combo last year was a little too monochromatic. This one is still in my earth-tone comfort zone, but the soft purple is a bit of a stretch for me. I’m really excited!


Are any of you guys participating with me? Got your colors picked out?

    I can’t wait to see it. I am also participating but haven’t made my final decision on my colors yet.
    I wear last years project frequently and always get tons of compliments on it.

      Awesome! I love seeing how everyone’s color choices can make the same project look so completely different. I’m so glad last years necklace was such a success for you! :D
