Skull Beads Design Inspiration Featuring the Swarovski Crystal 5750-13mm Skull Beads in Crystal Silver Night. Below I used the 5040-6mm Jet Rondelle Bead and the 5540-12mm Artemis Beads in Jet.

The Swarovski Crystal Pave Ball at the top is the 86001-8mm Jet Hematite. I made this Crystal Skull design into earrings, but it would make a great statement pendant as well.

Pantone Fall Color Trends 2015 Chic Fashion

2015 Pantone Color Report: An Evolving Color Landscape

Here is this last section of the top 10 most popular fall and winter colors, where I focus on the warmest and most unique hues this color palette has to offer. I’m thrilled that there are some refreshingly cheerful colors to choose from this season! The colors that we choose to wear and surround ourselves with can have a substantial impact on our mood, so I love that it will now be “fashionably acceptable” to incorporate more vibrant and upbeat hues to uplift our spirits on some of those dreary winter days.

Cadmium Orange Pantone Fall Fashion Color Trends 2015

Pantone’s Top 10 Fall and Winter Color Report: Cadmium Orange

Cadmium Orange is a warm, welcoming and gorgeous hue that is somewhat subtle but holds enough drama for a new type of refreshing orange this Fall and Winter. It’s almost a peachy type of orange that evokes a sentiment of optimism, fun and fantasy. It’s both playful and sophisticated that is a lighter compliment to the more traditional deeper orange and copper type fall tones. It can also act as a valiant contrast to the darker blue and green tones popular in these cooler months ahead.

Cadmium Orange’s Complimentary Swarovski Crystal Color Tones Include:

Pantone’s Top 10 Fall and Winter Color Report: Cashmere Rose

The Cashmere Rose is an absolute exquisite color! This feminine almost antique pink hue also has a gentle and elegant richness to it that sets it apart as one of my all-time favorite colors! It’s just a perfectly lovely and delightful hue that is graceful and timeless.

It’s a gorgeous color that pairs well with so many options. It’s an ideal color for making wedding jewelry, because it’s works perfectly for both bridesmaids in a wedding party, as well as guests of a wedding. It’s also an every day type of color as well because it’s just so darn beautiful! It’s simply a romantic tone that matches well with soft purple hues, dusty rose type of shades and cream or white colors as well. It’s divine, just divine!!

3 Fall Fashion Color Trends for 2015 With Complimentary Swarovski Crystal Tones!

Pantone Fall Color Trends 2015

(Pantone Fashion Color Report Fall 2015)

I can’t believe how fast this summer is flying by! It’s not over yet, we still have some time left to squeeze out some last minute fun in the sun. As we wind down the summer, it’s a perfect time to start thinking creatively about our new fall fashion and jewelry accessories!

The fall season can be busy with all of the arts and craft shows, family gatherings, apple picking, pie making, leaf peeping excursions…whoa, it becomes a lot (a lot of fun, that is!). To help you start gearing up for all of your fall fun and artistic ventures, I will go through the top 10 colors for fall 2015 and the complimentary Swarovski Crystal Colors.

Top 10 Colors for Fall 2015

(Top 10 Colors for Fall 2015 designed by Mag)

Right off the bat, my favorites are the Desert Sage, Stormy Weather, Cashmere Rose and Amethyst Orchid. The Bicsay Bay is also beautiful and I’m not normally a big orange fan, but the Cadmium Orange is a soft, almost a peachy orange which I find myself being drawn to more and more. I will break up these colors in stages, highlighting the first three colors now and the others will follow. So let’s get started…

 Dried Herb

(Pantone Fall 2015 Color Trend Report)

The Dried Herb is a classic olive green shade which people are naturally drawn to during the fall and winter months. It was once thought of as primarily a safari or military color, but is now being elevated into a fashionable fall staple that we can perceive as sophisticated and chic. It has an organic quality and is closely related to nature and earthly fragrances.

  Swarovski Crystal Pearls Dark Green  Swarovski Crystal Pearls Light Green

Desert Sage

(Pantone Fall 2015 Color Trend Report)

Desert Sage is a soft and calming greenish grey color that is an ideal neutral tone. This lovely hue expresses a timeless quality that is stylish and compelling enough to make an influential fashion statement in and of itself. It connects us to a valuable feeling that naturally inspired colors are comforting and peaceful. Additionally it reminds us of things that are real and not invented.

Complimentary Swarovski Crystals and Pearls include;

Erinite                                             Chrysolite Satin

Stormy Weather Pantone Fall Color Trends

(Pantone Fall 2015 Color Trend Report)

Signifying quality and luxury, Stormy Weather is a powerful blue gray shade that is strong, protective and enduring. Reminiscent of the sky on a gray, overcast day, this deep color is a quintessential fall favorite. Creating elegant accessories to compliment this popular hue will be very easy due to the rich assortment Swarovski provides in this stylish tone.
