Palettes: A palette, from the Latin for shovel, is either the board an artist uses to mix colors, or a set of colors, as in an autumn palette. Metamorphically, it might refer to other sets such a palette of textures or sounds. The examples below seem to be unique to the author.
Watching the palettes catch the light, hearing beads on the hem click against each other, I could imagine myself dancing in the dress.
The skirt brushed softly at the skin just below my knees, and the silver palettes shimmered, making it look as if the dress were actually made of light.
