Midnight Garden Beads Color Palette

Today over on the Art Bead Scene I blogged about where I find the color inspiration for my beads.  My latest bead series, Midnight Garden were inspired by a series of paintings and textiles from Pinterest.  Stop on over at the Art Bead Scene today for a chance to win a $30 gift certificate to celebrate my new website launch!

Midnight Garden Beads from Humblebeads

Midnight Garden Big Disk Beads, Midnight Garden Wafer Beads, Midnight Garden Long Beads, Midnight Garden Disk Beads.

I could see these beads paired up with turquoise stones for a bright and playful look. 

Mix them with Czech glass flowers and leaves in green, teal, red and yellow with Vintaj brass filigree for a summer garden design.

Stack them up with round black stones or glass beads and silver accents for a sophisticated and subdued style.

Or use black chain and let the art beads take center stage.  I really dig the Arte Metal chain from Vintaj, it's black as midnight and has a lovely matte finish.  That's good stuff!
