I think the color brown gets a bad rap. That is, until someone thought it was a great pairing with pink, now turquoise and teal. I still enjoy a little chocolate brown with lavender.
But, color effects us in ways we may not even be aware of. Red is a color that will get you picked out of the Oprah Winfrey Show crowd - it catches the eye. Blues and greens are "friendly" colors, great for job interviews. Check out this article at Wikipedia on Color Symbolism and Psychology.
I am enjoying these color combinations that may not seem obvious at first and so are many others. In fact, one of my signature swirl pendants is featured in a lovely treasury alongside other beautiful works on Etsy! Click below to view until Sunday, July 13th!
