My 2014 Pantone Spring Artisan Jewelry

February 12, 2014
Even here in dry California we are excited about Spring.  Since we didn't get our green hills this winter we are looking forward to our gardens bursting with color.

Pantone Spring colors 2014

from Pantone's site

Radiant Orchid is their color of the year!

This time of year I also love to see the colors that department stores and home decor shops have on display.  They're directly affected by the folks at Pantone that announce the Spring-Summer colors way in advance for manufacturers.
Like many who create artisan or handmade jewelry I create jewelry in the colors I want to create in, but we also can't help but be affected by the Pantone colors since they are all around us in the retail environment.
So as I have done in previous years I'm going to see what I have in my inventory that will coordinate with today's fashion.
