A funny thing about color.....

Turqouise beads by Roberta Warshaw

Yes, these two beads are made from the exact same turquoise color formula. yet notice how different they look from each other.

The scribing on the left is embellished with a blue/gold pearl acrylic paint. The scribing on the bead on the right has been embellished with bronze pearl ex. Also the bead caps are made with a faux ivory color on that one.

I am always amazed at how colors react with one another. It is a constant and mesmerizing study and one I never tire of.

Realmente es una especie de misterio como un mismo color se ve distinto segĂșn el complemento utilizado. Los dos trabajos son preciosos. Besos
