What a beautiful color scheme. I’ve always enjoyed lavenders/violets and orange together, but throw in a splash of bright yellow green… now that takes verve! (Another great photo by Andrew Castellano.)

I’ve extracted the colors from the photo and laid them out so you can better see the palette itself. I invite someone to bead a bracelet or necklace in these colors – I’ll post it here.


Lavender Orange Palette



Celeste Fugazzotto sent me a photo of a beautiful multi-strand bracelet she made – prior to seeing this photo – that matches the palette. Using carnelian, coral, peridot, and amethyst, the proportions are different, but the color families remain that of the photo. See how the abundance of orange heats up the piece. This is a brave scheme! (Click the image to see the entire bracelet.)
