The Beader's Guide to Color
"This is a must-have book about the use of color in beadwork. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this book is important for anyone wishing to understand the use of color in artwork." -Paula S. Morgan, About.com
The only book of its kind written specifically for bead artists, The Beader's Guide to Color teaches beaders of all levels everything they need to know about color to create unique and vibrant beadwork designs. Author and artist Margie Deeb discusses in depth the psychological and symbolic associations of all the colors of the spectrum, and the ways in which color can be used to create and accentuate pattern, rhythm, and movement. Twenty-one color schemes are described and illustrated in detail with accompanying projects.
Interweave Press's special publication, BEADS 2006, named The Beader's Guide to Color as one of the top 20 beading books on the market.
