Art Bead Color Palette :: Gaea Ceramic Beads

I'm drawn to mediums that I can't really do. Like last month's art bead color palettes, with metal patinas from Miss Ficklemedia, this month, Gaea's ceramic beads caught my eye.

I tried ceramics for several years with little success, so I'm always amazed with the work ceramic artists do. From the creating to the shaping, sanding, firing, glazing, refiring - work from artists like Gaea are truly labors of love!

And aren't they gorgeous? Gaea's already put together little color stories, so creating color palettes was so easy this month. With spring coming to the northern hemisphere, I'm loving the bright colors of Gaea's beads the best.

What about you? Have you worked with ceramics before? What colors are you loving right now?

Never worked with ceramics but there are a couple of artists that live near me that make the most amazing ceramic beads - I think lampworking will have to be my thing for a while - but there is always room for another skill.

I love all those palettes especially the first one which look soft, happy colors they are.

Wonderful! Wow, I think this design can be also done for cellphone keychains. I love the idea of match beads.
