Give Me Red! - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade

 
 
 

If I could tell you about Red

I would sing to you of fire

Sweet like cherries

Burning like cinnamon

Smelling like a rose in the sun

 

Dixie Dawn Miller Goode, from Rainbows Around Us: A Celebration of Color


 

I absolutely love the color red - it’s by far my favorite color.  It always has been, even as a very small child and always wanted to wear my “pretty red dress” with the matching red shoes.  Whenever I wear red, people always comment that I look extra cheerful (of course, I love to hear that!). Red is a color that can signify both ends of the emotional spectrum.  On one end red is for happiness, romance, passion, energy, confidence, courage, etc. On the opposite end, red is used to indicate danger, jealousy, anger, aggressiveness, etc.  

 

Since I have been designing a lot with red recently, I decided this week’s Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade would be titled Give Me Red!  Appropriate, I think. All of the work of the handmade artists featured this week include red - some items are mostly red and some items use red as accents.  I hope you enjoy the beauties featured below.

The Color that Demands Attention!

A beautiful color that demands attention, there is a shade of red to suit most everyone. If you can't wear it as a staple, you can wear it as an accent and it WILL be noticed. Great items from everyone, and thanks so much for including my choker necklace.
