How do you pick a business colour scheme? Do you use a colour wheel? Do you find an inspirational picture to pick colours from? Do you use the colours you love most? Do you research colour psychology?
I came up with a colour palette after a ton of research and thought, but was still unsure if I was making the right decision. Gemstones are at the forefront of my jewelry design, and they represent the earth element. I decided to look to them for inspiration and perhaps some assistance in making a final decision so I could move forward again. This is the result of our collaboration, which was actually an affirmation that my original idea had been perfect.
Apatite - goal achievement, problem solving, motivation, and a humanitarian attitude. It honours Gaia, the Greek Earth Mother Goddess, the personification of the Earth itself. The one I have is a beautiful blend of deep teal blue with some lighter tones. My camera had a hard time picking up the exact hue, but anyone who has ever worked with this stone knows the colour well. Teal is one of my favourite colours. It represents creativity, balance, healing, calmness, compassion and communication.
White Howlite - patience, calm communication, formulation of ambitions and assistance in achieving them. White is great to bring lightness to a darker palette. It represents simplicity, perfection, equality and an open mind.
Black Tourmaline - provides grounding, disperses tension and stress, protection against negative energy and cellphone emanations, and promotion of a positive attitude. Black is classic and goes with everything. It represents timelessness, power, sophistication and prestige.
Iron Pyrite - the persistence to carry things through to completion, leadership, manifestation, promotes abundance, and acts as an energy shield. Gold is another classic colour. It represents self-worth, success, positivity, abundance, wealth and luxury.
Whenever I ask my daughter what her favourite colour is, she always says "I love all the colours" but she definitely prefers blue. I have to agree that every colour is beautiful and has power over our emotions. What is your favourite colour?
