Iris Flower Delica Bead Color Palettes

Do you get inspired by colors of blooming flowers?
After a recent visit to an iris farm in Salem, Oregon I was so inspired by great colors of irises that I had trouble falling asleep for several days. I enjoyed looking at photographs I made and imagining designs I could create using these colors. My artistic friends also expressed an interest in working with iris color palettes and using them in future art projects.




Would you find these color combination attractive? Imagine what you would do with them? String several strands of colorful beads? Make an abstract bead embroidery piece? Or maybe weave an iris flower just like the ones I displayed for you today? Whatever you choose, I hope you enjoy looking at nature’s art and let it inspire you!

Iris Flower Color Palettes

I selected some of the Delica seed bead colors for you to make your bead selection easier. Some people prefer silver lined colors, some – opaque. To me, it all depends on a project. Feel free to play with similar colors and combine both: lined and opaque colors in the same project.

    The color palettes are a wonderful idea. They help me transfer the information into Czech bead colors, I use Mother Nature in many of my color combinations.
