Beading with Pantone Spring Colors


Did the groundhog bring the news you were hoping for yesterday? Whether you're a outdoor enthusiast who can't wait for six more weeks of the white stuff, or a snowbird already shopping for your new spring wardrobe, you'll want to check out these beading patterns that pick up the colors that Pantone has deemed "in" for Spring!

Several times per year, the Pantone company releases its report of what colors will be trending in paint colors, home decor, fashion, and more. We've pulled together a list of Facet projects that you can create to be up-to-the-minute with the Spring 2017 trends!

From Pantone's press release: 

“One of the things that we saw this year, was a renewed sense of imagination in which color was appearing in context that was different than the traditional,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Reminiscent of the hues that surround us in nature, our Spring 2017 Fashion Color Report evokes a spectrum of emotion and feeling. From the warmth of sunny days with PANTONE 13-0755 Primrose Yellow to the invigorating feeling of breathing fresh mountain air with PANTONE 18-0107 Kale and the desire to escape to pristine waters with PANTONE 14-4620 Island Paradise, designers applied color in playful, yet thoughtful and precise combinations to fully capture the promises, hope and transformation that we yearn for each Spring.”

Primrose yellow
"Primrose Yellow sparkles with heat and vitality. Inviting us into its instant warmth, this joyful yellow shade takes us to a destination marked by enthusiasm, good cheer and sunny days."
Sunflower power
Primrose Yellow explodes in this bracelet designed by Merle Berelowitz. Find the pattern in our store. 
Lapis blue
"Conveying even more energy is Lapis Blue. Strong and confident, this intense blue shade is imbued with an inner radiance."
Surfin the waves hero
Jimmie Boatright's necklace manages to capture all three different shades of blue, but I think Lapis blue is the most predominant. Check it out here. 
"A red-based orange, Flame, is gregarious and fun loving. Flamboyant and vivacious, this wonderfully theatrical shade adds fiery heat to the spring 2017 palette."
Stitched antique bracelet

Flame is definitely highlighted in the bottom bracelets shown here, designed by Kerrie Slade. but the I think the top is Pink Yarrow, and the middle one could be Lapis Blue if you squint a little! Check them out here. 
Island paradise
"Island Paradise is a refreshing aqua that calls to mind a change of scenery. A cool blue green shade that speaks to our dream of the great escape, Island Paradise is emblematic of tropical settings and our desire to unwind."

Island Paradise is perfect in this pattern, and throw in some Hazelnut to contrast beautifully in this stunning cuff designed by Jackie Schweitz. Check it out here. 
pale dogwood
"Continuing the tranquil mood, Pale Dogwood is a quiet and peaceful pink shade that engenders an aura of innocence and purity. The unobtrusive Pale Dogwood is a subtle pink whose soft touch infuses a healthy glow."
Rainbow bright bracelet
This sparkling cuff designed by Sarah Meadows takes care of all kinds of colors! But I think I see a definite bit of Pale Dogwood along the bottom of the pink sections. Get the pattern from our store.
"Bringing forth a refreshing take, Greenery is a tangy yellow-green that speaks to our need to explore, experiment and reinvent. Illustrative of flourishing foliage, the fertile attributes of Greenery signals one to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate."
Four square necklace hero
