Analogous Color Challenge

Today is the start of our second Color Challenge! This is the Analogous Color Challenge! The Analogous Section of the Challenge runs for 4 weeks from January 22nd to February 19th.
Analogous Colors are colors which are found next to each other on the color wheel. An example is the Blue, Blue-Violet, and Violet Scheme which I used to create this necklace. Other examples are a color scheme of Red, Orange and Yellow or a color scheme of Green, Blue-Green and Blue. Often one color is chosen as the main color and the other colors are used to accent the design.
I had a lot of fun making this design and I really had a hard time narrowing down my choices to come up with just one example. I could have gone on making more pieces in more fiery colors, or in a purple-red scheme for Valentine's Day. Maybe I will have to try some more designs and stretch my creative muscles? :-)
To enter your work for a chance to win beautiful Clay beads by Beads-of-Clay members, please add your photos to the Beads of Clay Flickr group. Please label your photo with the color scheme you have used. Example: Analogous Blue- Violet This is how I will know that you are playing along!
On Febuary 19th a random winner will be chosen from all the entries in the Analogous color group.
Entries need to include at least one clay bead or button. Entries can be a Clay bead or Button. Entries do not have to be jewelry.
There is still time to Enter your Monochromatic Designs in the challenge. The monochromatic section of the Challenge Closes on February 5th
