.............................................................................................................

We work with a variety of Czech glass seed beads, crystals & semi-precious stones in all the colors of the rainbow. 

We ship in assorted colors in groups of 12, unless you have arranged for a special order. 

Some of our products come in limited color choices, as noted on the webpage.

This is mostly true for the flower collections where Fuschias are always fuchsia; 

Sunflowers are always yellow, Sea and Sand are turquoise and gold, and so on.

 .............................................................................................................

COLORS: primary, metals, neutrals and pastels are available year-round, limited by current availability.

primary: blues, turquoise, greens, yellow, orange, reds, pinks, purple, brown, gray, black, white

neutrals: pale green, tan, gray, ivory, cream, dusty blue

pastels: pink, light blue, pale yellow, light green, lilac, lavender

 

The Visible Spectrum: Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple. 

The color White is the presence of ALL light. Black is the absence of ALL light.

There is no black or white in a rainbow. A rainbow reflects the color spectrum in the middle.
