I'm sure many of you have noticed varying shades of any particular color. Sometimes you choose all the same shade to be consistent. However, as Brenda shows here, you can throw them all in too! If you look carefully at the pictures, she has maroon seed beads, large dark read beads as well as some silver foil beads with a decided orangish hue. The red window beads (bottom ones in the earrings) were warmed up with the copper framing. How she kept the design "together" was by anchoring them with the neutral colored black and pewter beads.
