PANTONE Spring Colors 2011

Since the PANTONE color forecast came out I've been testing glass colors. Until now I've just been trying to find and playing with individual colors to see how well they matched the forecasted colors.

I'm still not done finding and testing glass to match all of the colors but I did find some I was really excited about and, after receiving my new Beadroller sampler (which is perfect in every way), I was motivated to create a set with the colors I'm done testing.

This bead set was made with the colors:

  • Russet (Effetre Choco-lotta)

  • Coral Rose (Effetre Coral Mango Special)

  • Lavender (Effetre Periwinkle Pastel)

  • Regatta (CIM Electric Blue)
  • I'm excited about these colors so far, but stay tuned as I continue my pursuit of the best glass colors for Spring 2011, including tests with CIM Celadon, CIM Butter Pecan, Effetre Gray Pearl Pastel, and Effetre Butternut.
