Perfect Pairings :: Terri G + Barn Burd Designs + Swoondimples

As Heather pointed out the other day in her blog post on her site, "Accidentally on Trend," the Pantone colors for the year 2016 are Rose Quartz and Serenity. At first this baby pink and blue seemed to be so pedestrian and simple, but the more I see them the more I like them. And Miss Terri has pulled out all the stops on this bracelet that melds those two colors together in a fresh way. Terri has the right idea of balancing the brighter blue with the softer pink, bringing little touches of that blue all the way around and adding in just the right amount of soft yellow for interest. Even the copper metal and the ribbon brings a depth of rusty rose to the party. I think that for this color combo to work and not scream "baby shower" it is all about proportion. Funny that a painting that was chosen by the Art Bead Scene team so long ago is so spot on for the New Year palette!
