“Spring Fashion Colors”

Description from Granny Nancy: I checked out Pantone's spring colors and saw a few I decided to play with that would work for jewelry or clothing and ended up with emerald, grey jade (new jade), and forget the name but looks like peach. I found that peach is a hard bead to find. So I'm not thrilled with this but will try again another day.

    Yepper emerald is indeed “the” color for all of 2013. Well, now I’ll design that dress. My hubby always picked green for me.

    I’ll warn anyone trying to find emerald here, ya have to fudge with malachite, which is gorgeous. Bet they sell a lot of that this year!

    Are you listening Kevin? or whomever?

    I think the peach and the new jade work with the malachite. They kind of lift it out of its seriousness, add brightness, zest. Green power!

    Well, it truly was’t completely instinct Puppychick. I was looking at ALL the info about the colors for 2013 and 2 of the closest were new jade color and peach shades. I wasn’t sure it would work, but I’m going to try it and see. Thanks ya’ll.

    This pick works for me! Peach & minty-green have always been a favorite combo of mine. I like the added zing of the malachite! Favorite for sure!
