Why People Choose Certain Beads







Today we made 12 pairs of needles for an order. I love the idea that someone takes the time to go through our massive range of beads to make their choices. This is really import to us as the whole ethos behind our business is that people can get the 'perfect' pair of needles or hook to suit their taste and personality.



This has made me think about why people choose the beads they do, is it down to 'I like green and i like circles' we used to think so but now the thinking is going a little deeper.

I used to think that the round beads were chosen over all other shapes as they represent a regular knitting needle and a square bead didn't make them feel like it was a knitting needle but i think now that this has more to do with personality than regularity. A lot of studies have been done on this subject and i would like to share some of their findings.

Looking at an article from www.psychologytoday.com it looks at why people choose colours and they worked with a team and looked at why people chose a certain colour crayon, these are the results on colours and what they say about your personality, is this true for you?



White. People who like white are often organised and logical and don't have a great deal of clutter in their lives. 
Red. Those who love red live life to the fullest and are tenacious and determined in their endeavours. 
Blue. If blue is your favourite colour you love harmony, are reliable, sensitive and always make an effort to think of others.  You like to keep things clean and tidy and feel that stability is the most important aspect in life.
Green. Those who love the colour green are often affectionate, loyal and frank.  Green lovers are also aware of what others think of them and consider their reputation very important. 
Yellow. You enjoy learning and sharing your knowledge with others.  Finding happiness comes easy to you and others would compare you to sunshine. 
Purple. You are artistic and unique.  You have a great respect for people but at times can be arrogant.
Brown. You are a good friend and try your hardest to be reliable and dependable.  Flashy objects are not something you desire; you just want a stable life.

In respect to shapes, this is a tricky one as there are so many but we found this article in Weekly World News that covers quite a few shapes and we think that other shapes, such as hearts are a combination or more than 1 shape, see what it might say about you and let us know your comments below. it is a really interesting subject. Possibly have a look at our bead options, choose your favourite and see what it says about you.
