Fresh Pick: “Oxblood”

Posted by limabeads on December 07 at 09:27 pm

This Fresh Pick was designed by Miannda on Dec. 7, 2012.

Miannda says: I recently saw an article on fall 2012 color trends and oxblood was one of the colors. I noticed it, because, I already used the color in some of my designs and loved the rich, muddy red that it is. Of course now I see it everywhere:

    Ooooh, I love the deep, rich color of oxblood — these crystals & seed beads capture it beautifully! Love your choice of brass/bronze shades with it, Anna! :D

    Love the rich, tribal feel of your pick. I’ve liked oxblood since I was a girl and owned shoes and a bag in that color. When bright red is too strong,the more muted oxblood blends better with other colors.

    Love the complements you chose for your oxblood beads – - the “turtle” is fascinating and the circle agate may be my fave. Great pick !

    Love the components, the oxblood is gorgeous and the addition of brown and brass make it even more appealing :)

    Ditto to all the above! I think the oxblood is THE best new color… but I still hate that name! oh well.
    Uniting the oxblood and the browns is really different and appealing. :)

    Oxblood with the brass and cocoa is stunning!
