Keeping with my recent beading binge, I’ve been spending some time today matching mini-dice colors with beads in my collection. (Makes sense in context, I promise…)
The miniature polyhedral dice I bought for this project came in fairly neon colors – bright yellow, orange, green, blue, red, and pink. Since my style is a bit more muted – I rarely rock the neon – I’ve been really focusing on my other bead choices in order to make the overall color palate a bit richer.
My main strategy for this is to choose an overall color theme that the dice color supports, but that isn’t focused around the bright color. For example, for the yellow dice above, I focused my color theme around bright green. I added beads that matched that color, beads in yellow to support the dice, a few teal beads to add the other end of the lime green spectrum, and some clear, white, and brown beads to round it out.
In the orange section on the far left, I added beads that were mostly white, clear, or pink, to create a peach color theme.
In case you’re curious, here’s what I’m making with these bead sets:
These bracelets are the first collection going into our new Etsy shop, which you can find at www.etsy.com/shop/TheDiscerningGnome. I’m still in the process of getting all the listings up, but I’d love it if you go take a look!
