Red Ochre: Color Scheming on Etsy
Handpicked on Etsy
Ochre is a term for brown pigments derived from clays containing mineral oxides. Primitive mankind first used these earthy colors that modern day artists know as Yellow Ochre and Red Ochre. They range from yellow and golden browns, through the spectrum of rich honey browns and deep red-browns. Today I searched for the rich-honey version for this showcase of wonderful creations by Etsy artists.
I regard ochre as a most versatile and useful color for both wearable and home accessories: It adds sophistication and brings every color scheme back to earth. It is an especially timely color for the autumnal season, reminding us of nature's richness as we retreat indoors. Click on the pictures to go directly to these Etsy listings. Prices range from $6.50 to $175.00
