Creating Color Combinations Part XI

Hi everyone I am thrilled to welcome you to the eleventh post for Creating Color Combinations. I have created over 150 different color combinations for my Braidlets, each truly one-of-a-kind.
Swarovski Color Carousel

Occasionally I need a little help with new combinations so turn to the Color Carousel by Swarovski for inspiration. Lets give the wheel a spin and it stops on Lt. Rose.
The main color is Light Rose and the harmonious colors are Rose, Fuchsia, and Vintage Rose. Contrasting colors are Chrysolite and Peridot, with Crystal Rosaline as the matching pearl.
Lt Rose, Lt Rose AB and Rosaline Pearl
Using the Rosaline Pearl, Light Rose and Light Rose AB, I designed this Braidlet. I also used pale pink colored artistic wire, which I thought was a better fit instead of silver wire. Lastly I attached a silver plated colored magnetic clasp, which is great for those with arthritis.
Lt. Rose AB, Rosaline Pearl and Rose Swarovski Bracelet

This lightweight braided bracelet is handmade by crocheting each pearl and crystal to artistic wire, forming 3 strands, which are braided together creating a trendy and chic piece of jewelry known as Braidlets®
