Some people just have a natural flair for colours, such as Natasha, a first time beader. She was confident about what she liked - Chinese cloisonne beads and she successfully mixed large oval red ones with small turquoise round ones. She also mixed silver and gold tone rondelle beads. Natasha just instinctively knew what goes well together.

Her beautiful design worked because she had contrasts - different shapes, cool and warm colours, big and small. Yet, there were elements that tied everything together -the coloured beads were all cloisonne and all the beads were metallic. Good job, Natasha!
