When I first staring making beaded jewelry I always used dark colors- black, navy, charcoal. I had lots of friendly advice about my color choices, mostly telling me to use bright colors instead of the dark tones I was drawn to. Not everyone likes dark colors I was told. So, I bought LOTS of bright colored beads and started making bright colored jewelry. And now, most of the compliments and requests I get are for the darker tones I originally used. I am rethinking the colors I will use in the future. I see dark tones with a splash of brightly colored accents in my future (since I still have LOTS of bright colored beads). I just re-listed some Jagged Circle Earrings in my original color combination- charcoal, bronze, and steel.
