~~~ A Color Palette Book Giveaway ~~~



I've mentioned in the past that I adore graphic designer's color books for jewelry design.  The books not only provide gorgeous color palettes, but break the palettes down into moods.  If you want to evoke a feeling of elegance, or the tropics, or calm, there are palettes for those!


This necklace of mine says "Exciting"!


The book describes how colors create powerful emotions, and the book will help you not only get out of a color rut, but explore different moods and feelings with your jewelry.  The book has 159 pages and 1,400 color schemes and combinations -- so pass the beads!


If you're interested in owning this book, 
leave a comment below, 
and make sure you have a way for me to get in touch with you.

Posting about this on your blog gives you and added point!


We all know how excited Zack gets about pulling the winner's name out of the Sorting Bowl...




So the winner will be announced 
Tuesday, May 10th!




Lori Anderson creates jewelry for her web site, Lori Anderson Designs, and wrote the blog An Artist's Year Off.  She's also a contributor to Art Bead Scene.

  39. Wow Lori! what an amazing giveaway and it sounds like just the thing I need to shake me up a bit. When I opened my Etsy shop and started listing items I was amazed how much of it was blue- particularly as i don't wear it much myself . I hope that doesn't say I've been in a miserable mood for ever!!!
    Off to share on my blog now and hoping Zacl's lucky for me again :0)
