Fifty shades of Blue

I have an ongoing, long term love affair with the colour blue – my  favourite being cobalt blue.

 To me, there is a richness and a history to this colour, it has been used since ancient times to dye cloth and clothing and in Egypt it featured strongly in their jewellery.  In the Renaissance it was mixed to form ultramarine blue, the most expensive blue pigment.  It is a colour associated with harmony, loyalty and, more importantly, infinity!

I have worn blue in all its many shades all my life but these days limit myself to the intense, clear hues that compliment my hair and skin tone.

Here are fifty shades of blue to entice you.  Anyone can wear blue, it is just a question of choosing the right one for you!
