Color Affects us: Brown

Stone Soup Agate Necklace

Brown is a mixture of red, yellow & blue.  It is the color of earth and so is considered a grounding color.

Brown and it’s lighter hues of tan, taupe and beige are said to represent dependability, stability, and steadfastness. They convey feelings of warmth and comfort.

Brown was a popular color for clothing worn during the great depression… because it naturally concealed dirt!

Brown is the perfect background color. Bright and warm colors alike blend well with these shades.

Many gemstones come in brown tones. My favorites are the Agates as pictured here. Visit my site to check out a variety of designs using brown gemstones.
