We Have the Blues - Artisan Handmade - Three for Thursday

 

Blues is a tonic for whatever ails you. I could play the blues and then not be blue anymore.

B. B. King


 

Even though the above quote by B. B. King is about music, it can also be about the color blue.  According to psychologists, the popularity of the color may take root in our evolutionary development. In the early hunter-gatherer days, those drawn to positive things - like clear blue skies and clean blue hued water were more likely to survive.  Over time, this preference for the color blue may have become hard-wired. To this day, the color blue is still a favorite color worldwide.

 

As you probably already have surmised, the color blue is the theme for this week’s Three for Thursday post:  We Have the Blues.  I chose three items from three handmade artists in various shades of blue: light, medium and dark. The artists are:  Charlotte of Covergirlbeads who makes colorful lampwork glass beads; Pamela of MagdaleneKnits who crochets fabulous baby items; and me, Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs who creates fun boho jewelry.  I hope you enjoy my blues picks and will visit the shops of the artists for more wondrous handmade "we have the blues" beauties.
