For those of you who've been around for a little while with me and Margie, you'll know I like the art.
Which is to say that the color palettes generated by art tend to be among my favorites.Nature? Eh...not so much...so, of course, for the month of February I'm skipping the little hearts and tiny naked baby angels, and we're going with some more modern lines and mature color palettes.
First up is the palette from Margie. The Colors of Constructivism is #102 in her book, The Beader's Color Palette. The palette is awesome. Some deep grays and light grays with just a splash of black and a pop of teal. (I love the mix of teal with gray).
Of course, check out Margie's book for the Delica numbers, and this time around, she even has a pattern for this design in the book!
The second palette is one I chose myself...and to stick with my theme of visiting the Spanish-speaking world, we're jumping from Mexico to Madrid and specifically right onto somebody's balcony. I love this bright mustard yellow color with the punch of denim blue around the balconies.
I've also got a million ideas about shapes running through my head.

Okay, here are the dates so you can keep up!
Jan. 31: New Palettes (see above)
Feb. 7: Sneak Peek. I'll post a sneak peek image of mine and leave some space on my post so you guys can leave links to your sneak peeks.
Feb. 19: The Reveal! I know it's a little early, but there's no way I'm gonna try to compete with the Bead Soup Blog Party! So, we'll do our reveal a little early.
Okay, here are the rules:Create a piece of jewelry using one or both of the color palettes above as inspiration, show off your piece on your blog and come back here on Feb. 19th to show a link so we can all enjoy it! You can use any kind of technique, just as long as it's jewelry.
Thanks to everyone who played along last month and I hope you like this month's palettes!
