Complimentary Colour Palette

Colour theory has the goal of predicting or specifying the colour combinations that would work well together or appear harmonious.

The 12 point colour wheel has been adopted as the principle tool for defining these basic relationships. These colour combinations are offered to help you mix and match your favorite colours. Beadworks UK has provided examples of Complimentary and Triadic colour palettes.

Complimentary Colours

When placed next to each other, complementary colours make each other appear brighter. Choose an accent bead in a complimentary colour if your goal is to show off the colour of your principle bead. Dark shades of one colour can be effectively mixed with light colours of complimentary colour for added riche ness.
