Colour Charts

P = Primary colour : S = Secondary colour : T = Tertiary colour (which is a mix of the 2 colours on either side)

I love colour charts - maybe they remind me of paint palettes.  
Going into a yarn or art shop is like an Aladdin's cave!

Same for me! It's such a thrill and I get chills all over... thought I was the only one. Color is FANTASTIC!

Love your charts. Have been trying to figure out how to organize our beads by color, and you have the best charts yet. Thank you so much! Write me anytime...

Hi Catherine, thanks so much for your lovely comment. I have never really lost this feeling either!

Hi! Didn't see an email (yet) about your comment but so glad I stopped back by (I've bookmarked it for sure). Love your page!

I found a couple more good color charts if you want to take a look:

Still like yours the best! Thanks so much. We do beautiful, colorful beadwork with the indigenous Mayan artisans around Lake Atitlan and they don't use or need color charts, but I do! You wouldn't believe how beautiful some of their color combinations are. I'm hoping to get excellent photos at some point that really show the detail, but you can take a look at what I've posted so far at AtitlanArts dot com.

I see that you do beadwork too. You will have to visit here one day; it will "blow your mind!"

Hi Catherine, I couldn't seem to access the links you gave me, but have decided to add to this post, if I find anything else exciting! I have also not been able to access as the server is down at the moment, but will be trying this again.
