    Hi, I only wanted to say, don’t be scared to use any color at any time of the year. All colors go with any season from what I see anyway.

    Three years ago I bougth the video #1 of the wire sculpture and I made a practicing work with cameos. Everybody liked them, but I had to move to Florida. Then I stop Because as you know this is an expensive hoby and I don`t have the money to afford the cost. Know I am going to begin again little by little. I like this hoby but I have to go ease, so I like advising about what is better for a good beginning.I have to study about colors because I understand that I can do with a little practice a good work. Thinking on that I appreciate your counsel. THanks. JUAN

    I just saw the video on the colour wheel and complementary colours were not mentioned but it is important to remember that the colours opposite on the colour wheel are often termed as complementary colours and these would also be interesting colour schemes.

    Thanks folks! I will be getting a video camera soon, as the webcam just doesn\’t do a good job of showing good detail. Thanks for your patience!

    Being somewhat new to beading and being very visual I found this video invaluable. For me, a color wheel is limited. With a color fan you can see all the possibilities for your best choices!
    Thank you so much.
