Color Inspiration - Orange Beach Glass


Who said seaglass only comes in shades of blue?

These gem-like little nuggets of glass are nestled inside a 'Nuttallia obscurata' (purple varnish clam) shell creating a lovely expanded complementary color palette.

Some bits of color fall on the saturated wheel, other shades have cool earthy undertones.
