When people tease me about only wearing green, I remind them of the numerous teal items in my wardrobe, and half the time they say that doesn't count, because teal is blue-green. But my opinion is that teal is its own separate color, with greenish tones, which looks good with some shades of green. But it is not green.
I mention this because I am beading in teal right now. I intended to bead in green, but my green beads were too similar to each other, which means I need to go dig through my stash again for better greens. So I'm working with teal instead. Of course, the teal is going into a reversible bracelet, the other side of which will be green (when I find the right greens), so when all is said and done, I will have a new green bracelet.
But it will also be teal.
Which is not green.
