Week 16 Year of Jewelry - My Color Experiment

Four color variations of a micro macrame bracelet by Sherri Stokey of Knot Just Macrame.

Yes, I've gone off-road again.  This week's theme was Something Hidden, but I (quite accidentally) went my own way again.  I started off with this bracelet.

Bracelet knotted in teal, turqoise, marina blue and mustard

I like to play around with color and I know blue and orange is an age old combination, so I put my own spin on it using a deep marina blue cord, teal and turquoise beads and then a pop of mustard.  I loved the result, but someone mentioned using coral instead of mustard, so I had to make another with that variation.

And by this time I was thoroughly smitten with the "what-if" bug and just had to see what would happen if I replaced the coral beads with chartreuse.

That one, by the way, is going in my books as an all-time favorite, but of course, me being me, I couldn't leave well enough alone.  I had to try switching out the chartreuse with lavender.

Needless to say, after all this what-iffing and substitution, I ran out of time to make a "Something Hidden" project.  Unless you count the newest project I have pinned on my board - marina cord with teal and turquoise beads but substituting orange for the lavender.  It's a sickness, really.
