The Art of Blue

Browsing the latest offerings from my fellow KCEtsy Team members I was instantly drawn to handful of pieces all in this beautiful shade of blue. To go with their artfully handcrafted pieces, I thought I'd share a few fun facts about this popular primary color.
  • On the color wheel, orange is blue's complementary color.
  • "Of all the colors in the spectrum, blue is an appetite suppressant. Weight loss plans suggest putting your food on a blue plate." (Color Matters)
  • Be it a dark bold navy blue or a light and airy periwinkle, blue, in one of it's many shades, is a universally liked color by just about everyone.
  • "Blue conveys importance and confidence without being somber or sinister ... blue, especially darker blue, is associated with intelligence, stability, unity, and conservatism." (
  • Blue symbolizes: youth, spirituality, truth, peace (Emily Gems)
  • Blue gemstones promote peace and are used to calm ragged emotions. They are used to provide relief to people who have difficulty sleeping or who have nightmares. They offer inspiration and enhance the quality of communication. (Emily Gems)
