What a great job it would be to make up new colors for swarovski crystals!! How do you determine that there is a gap in the swarovski color catalog somewhere? Why add a shade of pink? Were there focus groups where beaders were polled to find out what color they'd like to see? Did someone receive some divine intervention during a meditative session? Is there a list of "beads in waiting" that patiently sit still on the side lines awaiting approval year after year? Are there scientific methods for identifying color matches or contrasts for the new beads to make sure they will "fit in" with the existing swarovski colors?
Hmm... While I'd really be interested in finding out the answers to those questions, I don't really NEED to know in order to appreciate their selections! One of the new swarovski colors pictured here is the indian pink bicone. I had photographed it next to the 2xab capri blue bicone recently and liked the combination so I left them in the background just for fun!
I received the indian pink bicones from Rings&Things recently and now I'm wondering if they have any inside info on how new colors are developed at Swarovski. If Dave R. from Rings & Things stops by in the near future, hopefully he'll let us all know.
Here's hoping that you all have a great new week!!
