Pantone Color of The Year for 2016

Good Morning,

This morning's post is brief, as we introduce Pantone's Color of the Year for 2016, there are two.

Basically they are pastel pink and blue.  Nice, but not very designer friendly, unless you design for children under five.

Although there is a gemstone Rose Quartz that can be found occurring naturally as a very soft pastel pink, it can also be dyed to a uniform deeper color.  The Alchemists Vessel carries a limited selection of Rose Quartz Jewelry.

This bracelet has sold, but as example of the very soft pink color of the natural stone.

Or you can always go with good old pink.

Pastel Blue is a bit harder, about as close as the artist can get to it is Turquoise, or Blue Lace Agate, light blue Czech Glass beads in colors like "aqua" or "ice blue".

Blue Lace Agate Sterling Silver Earrings

2016, is going to make for interesting color combination and jewelry design.

In hope you have enjoyed this brief look at next year's favorite colors.

Thank you for stopping in and having a look.  Don't forget to stop  by the shop and see what is available.   Looking forward to serving you this year and next.

The Alchemists Vessel would like to wish you a pleasant day.
