Pantone Spring 2013 Bead Play

Posted by in all posts

Hi my creative friends!  I was working on getting some inspiration for some jewelry I have to make quickly and my mind is a little cluttered these days so it’s been hard to concentrate on making jewelry and feeling creative.

For a little help, I downloaded the Pantone Spring Color Report and then went digging through my bead boxes and poured some beads on the paper.  Now I’m feeling a little more focused and my bead play was kind of pretty so I thought I would take a picture for you!

  1. Wow, that’s a cool idea — all the right beads come together instantly from the beginning. I usually pick a main colour, start making the piece and then I’m left scrambling to try to find something to go with it.

  2. Love this

  3. Excellent idea Tracey! Love the beads you picked! Looks great!

  4. Great idea. I have been a bit scattered myself and not sure where I am headed. I think you have the makings of a great bracelet right there! Looking forward to seeing your creations unfold! Enjoy the day. Erin

  5. Tracy, what a GREAT source for finding not only inspiration, but with help honing in on current trends with color! You have a beautiful selection of beads collected there! 🙂
