I don't usually love the color orange, but this year I find myself strangely drawn to it, especially if it's paired with turquoise. Maybe since it's been one of the rainiest springs on record here in the pacific NW, it just brightens everything up. Orange is a happy color. You can't be in the doldrums when wearing orange.
It's been fun using these bright colors in my jewelry making, since there's such a good choice of beads on the market. Here's some sample of some items that were recently listed in my shop.
Drop by and take a look while my orange craze continues.
When I purchase beads for my ETSY shops, I can't resist the orange beads. Maybe they hearken back to my youth, and the bright Orange Crush soda cans. Whatever the reason, I was surprised to learn that Orange, along with Turquoise, Purple and Yellow are hot colors for this year.
