Olives at Midnight

I did make some beads attempting to duplicate the colors used in the Olives at Midnight treasury.

I’m not sure that they are photo worthy.  They probably are, but since they did not turn out the way that I had envisioned, I was disappointed.  Once I get over that, then I can evaluate them more objectively!

First of all, I tried a blue that was much too bright.  Then I got the blue closer, even thought I don’t have any color that really matches the midnight blue.

Then, instead of using the nice, muted olive green that I used for the beads that were in the treasury, I used a color that actually is called Olive green.

I definitely did not achieve the effect that I wanted at all.
