The Color of the Year 2010…TURQUOISE!

But its not the turquoise hue you may be imagining… this one leans heavily toward green. It’s PANTONE©15-5519.

From the PANTONE website:
“Combining the serene qualities of blue and the invigorating aspects of green, Turquoise evokes thoughts of soothing, tropical waters and a languorous, effective escape from the everyday troubles of the world, while at the same time restoring our sense of well being.”

We’ll be exploring this in the Spring/Summer 2010 Color Report for Bead & Jewelry Designers. I’ve already shot some beautiful pieces to represent this beautiful color.
