I am really a monochromatic person...just look in my closet and you will see a majority of black. Working in metal is perfect for me because I don't have to guess at what colors to put into my design. For those of you that have trouble with combining colors like I do....travel over to kris's color stripes. She takes a picture or an item and creates a color palette of stripes. These can be useful in your jewelry designs or in redecorating your house.
