For some people me included color coordinating comes easy! But to others not so easy. A short time ago I went with my husband to an event at his work. While there one of his female associates came up to me and said "Oh you are so color coordinated." I graciously thanked her but suspect it wasn't meant as a complement. Understand I'm not a femme fatale or anything similar to Elle Woods in Legally Blonde. Quite the contrary, in fact I've always felt I was a little plain. But I do have the ability to match colors. This I assume comes from my artistic side.
Growing up I sewed my own wardrobe for school. I spent the summers sewing dresses and skirts to wear that winter to school. Through life I learned that different skin tones look better in different colors. And different colors make you look differently. Take for instance me; I am very light complected with freckles and have red undertones in my hair. I look best in the browns, peaches, greens. That doesn't mean I can't and won't' wear any color I want it just means what looks best. I have quite a few pieces of turquoise jewelry done in silver. Silver looks a little washed out on me, but I love the Native look of Turquoise and Sterling Silver. Although, I do wear it frequently it looks better on me after I get a good summer tan.
The reason I am telling you this is to bring you up to colors and jewelry. When I create a piece of jewelry I do try to match colors. When I do beading I try to match colors that complement each other, and same goes for wire wrapping. Some shades of a certain color look best with gold whereas a different shade of same color looks better with silver. Although there are not any set rules, I do try and use my artistic eye to create using color coordinating.
So it doesn't matter if you look better in a different color, if you like it wear it! That is unless you are going for a beauty contest.
