Spring Color Inspiration - PANTONE® Color Report

Spring 2017 Color Inspiration: PANTONE® & Swarovski Crystal

In Pantone Color Institute's color report for spring 2016, the top twelve colors for the season were announced. In the report, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiseman shares her vision for the color palette as she states, "Colors this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves" (Pantone Color Institute, 2016).

With cheery Buttercup, fiery Fiesta, and Green Flush, the 2016 color palette evokes the happiness and free spirited attitude Eiseman describes. As the Northern Hemisphere breaks free from the confinement of the harsh winter months, this spring palette serves as the perfect inspiration for spring & summer jewelry!

We've paired each color in the PANTONE® spring 2016 color palette with Swarovski Crystals to serve as color inspiration for your next jewelry project. We hope you fall in love with Rose Quartz, Peach Echo, Serenity, Snorkel Blue, Buttercup, Limpet Shell, Lilac Grey, Fiesta, Iced Coffee, and Green Flash as we all have here at JBC Beads!
