With such a large number of colors to work with in seed beads, sometimes it takes longer to pick beads then stitch the project.
I find inspiration for my colors from nature and love to watch fashion type shows on TV. i.e. The Fashion Show and Project Runway. They give you an idea about colors that are happening now.

What inspires you to pick the colors you work with?

Let me know I love to hear about what inspires people and it can help us inspire each other :)

**Tip: Using black and white in projects will help colors pop **

I recommend this book : The Beader's Color Mixing Directory by Sandra Wallace
