Embracing Color with Margie Deeb

by Mandi Bugatti | Bead Circle Podcast

I am honored to have the Color Queen herself as my guest today. Margie Deeb was the first artist /author to publish a book on color specifically addressing the challenges presented by working with glass beads. I personally own and use her books, The Beader’s Guide to Color and The Beader’s Color Palette. Her passion for color and movement is the driving force in all her creations. In addition, Margie teaches her color and beading seminars to artists of all mediums across the country.

In my interview with Margie, we discuss how to break out of color ruts, what colors look good on everyone, and what to do when you’re making something for someone else and you don’t like the colors they’ve chosen.

We also unpack all the goodness that will be in her upcoming book: The Beader’s Guide to Jewelry Design. Enjoy the interview!
