Wire Jewelry Idea: Pantone’s Spring 2012 Color Forecast

Wire Jewelry Idea for
January 18, 2011
Not too long ago, we talked about the Fall 2011 Pantone colors: the colors that seemed most prevalent in the fashion, design, and jewelry world for the fall 2011 season, picked by color expert Pantone. True to form, nearly every shirt I was drawn to while shopping was one of those 10 colors! And sure enough, the jewelry I made with those 10 colors in mind matched nearly anything in the stores.
Well, it’s time to start thinking spring and summer, and Pantone’s already there with the Spring 2012 Pantone forecast.
The browns and yellow are pretty similar to the Fall 2011 colors, so if you have jewelry made with those colors, feel free to display it proudly. However, the Deep Teal, the dark Cedar, and the pale blue colors might want to sit this summer out. This spring, the colors spring to life with vibrant, vivid fuchsia (Cabaret), fierce orange (Tangerine Tango), and a solid Blue (Sodalite Blue). These are loud summer colors designed for warm weather!
I’ve put together a humble list of suggestions using this season’s Pantone Spring 2012 colors. For more ideas, especially with fashion, explore Pantone’s own website!
And here are some ideas of what you can make with the Spring 2012 Pantone Palette!
