Color Affects Us: White

White Pearl Necklace

When we think of white, our mind automatically goes to purity, cleanliness and innocence. Angels wear white and so do most hospital workers. While these are valid symbols for the color white, there is so much more to learn!

Did you know that white is an easier color to see as our eyes begin to age? While greens and blues become harder to read, white imprint against a dark background will reach all generations who view it! Keep in mind that the human eye can detect even the most subtle differences in shades of white. Be careful not to use white and ‘winter white’ together in a design. The winter white will appear dingy and dirty.

I love to use white pearls in my designs. White blends with virtually ANY color making it an easy choice!
