After days of tinkering, the bead inspired palette has come together in two forms. The watercolor version was easier to assemble because adding more water makes getting a close match simple. The ink version took forever as my collection lacks some of the colors that would work best. If I were to put together a palette from a single ink maker, it would be J. Herbin. Their softer colors suit the true colors of the beads quite well.
Caveat regarding the images. The ink photo lacks the vibrancy and clear colors of the swatches on my desk. Look elsewhere for better accuracy.
