A Lesson in Color Theory…
In my shop days this bracelet was an instant copycat bracelet. What's not to like..bright colors to celebrate the arrival of a new season. Plus, what I discovered through my time helping customers with color choices was this combo always… always… finished at the top the class.
Some Color Theory
When considering color, most of us have been exposed to basic terms like primary, secondary, complimentary, monochromatic, and probably references to warm and cool colors.
The above bracelet color scheme is based on the use of analogous and monochromatic color.
Analogous colors are simply 3 neighbors on the color wheel. Using 3 neighboring colors on the color wheel makes it easy to create a pleasing color combo because of similar undertones. In this case blue-green, green, and green-yellow.
Monochromatic describes 1 color in various values and intensities. Think about variations of lightness and saturation. Using monochromatic colors is very clean and easy on the eye. One of my favorite schemes, that never fails me.
Using this silver chain as the base helps create a simple, clean, and fresh design just perfect for Spring.
