Making Jewelry And Handmade Ornaments With 2020 Fall/Winter Pantone Colors

Do you love color? We do! We are firm followers of  Pantone trends. Pantone turned the subjective language of color into a solid science. They have categorized, studied, and revolutionized how we feel about color. We think their color palettes are impactful and amazing. 2020 fall and winter fashion is no exception. We color matched some of their choices for the season and adopted them into our beading and jewelry making. We think you are going to love the four colors we selected. Stay fashion forward and gloriously festive! Let's look at Pantone color!

Making Jewelry With 2020 Fall/Winter Pantone Colors

What Is The Pantone Color Institute?

The Pantone company was founded in the 1950s as a commercial printing company. It was originally named M & J Levine Advertising, after owners Mervin and Jesse Levine. In 1956, the brothers hired Lawrence Herbert, for part time work. Lawrence was a recent graduate from Hofstra university. Lawrence was skilled with colors and chemistry and was quick to notice how the science of color was a subjective language in the advertising community. One person's 'Warm Ochre' might be another's 'Toasty Butterscotch'. The system was extremely inefficient and without a solid, objective system, there would always be issues. In 1962, Lawrence purchased the company's assets from the Levine brothers and the Pantone company was born.

Pantone Is The Authority On Trending Color

Now in Carlstadt, New Jersey, the company forged ahead and created an easy system for printing companies to follow. The Pantone Color Matching System was launched and the color spectrum was given titles and numbers to make it easy for any industry that worked in color to create an objective Warm Ochre or Toasty Butterscotch. There would be no more guesswork. Using the CMYK process, colors could be duplicated using four inks (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black). The amount of mixing these colors would be be standardized and easy to replicate. In 2001, screen color was also adopted, using the RGB (Red, Green, Blue) color model.

In 2000, Pantone began announcing a Color of the Year. Twice each year, the company hosts secret meetings and collects input from representatives of various nations on what color will best represent the next year. The color is based on the meta of the current times and is a topical representation of how we collectively view color. Color is one language we all speak. The Color of the Year is infused with a global sense of what color represents every culture.

Color Match Your Beading Wire

Soft Flex Company has always taken color matching seriously. For almost thirty years, we have manufactured wire that is as elegant and colorful as the jewelry it is made to string. We believe that wire should not be hidden in a jewelry design, but incorporated into the piece as a whole. We have crafted a spectrum of color that will make your jewelry stand out. Soft Flex Beading Wire is meant to be exposed. Color gives a designer options. There is no longer a need to conceal every inch of the beading wire and hope it is not too exposed at the crimp. Color means that you can show all of your wire. This is ideal for illusion jewelry where large segments of wire are completely exposed. Color is perfect for braiding, weaving, and macrame. Don't settle for dull wire when you can design with color in mind.

We make it easy to be mindful of color. We offer single spools of color if you have a favorite. We also offer color sets. Trios Beading Wire collections are sets of three spools of beading wire. We put these colors together to fit moods, holidays, and to celebrate our mystery themed jewelry design kits. If you want to make jewelry that evokes a mood of Halloween fright, our Black Magic Trios are perfect for your holiday kit. If you envision a necklace inspired by calming energy, our Tranquility collection will take your away!

Be an explorer and fill your crafts with the living spectrum of glorious color!

2020 Fall/Winter Pantone Color - Military Olive

We took some artistic liberty with Military Olive. We have deep greens and bright greens in our beading wire color palette. But we felt like our Antique Brass was the most amazing match with this color. Antique Brass gives Military Olive beads a rich earthy look. The two tones really complement each other. This delicious mix makes for a stunning retro look. You could add a handmade woven rattan pendant and get a real Boho Style. A tassel is also a great anchor for a gorgeous design. This is perfect for a dusky fall day!

The warm organic look of this colorway is great for a blustery fall jewelry set. This selection is also great for the holidays. The green and brassy tones are reminiscent of a beautiful full Fir or Cedar, standing in a cozy living room. It is a great choice for jewelry that looks forward to a spring vibe too. So many options!

2020 Fall/Winter Pantone Color - Blue Depths

Blue Depths was a perfect color match with our Dark Blue Lapis. This wonderful tone is the bottomless Mariana Trench. It is the apex of atmosphere where sky touches space. It is the cold innocence of a baby's eyes. Blue Depths is versatile, it is a breezy summer necklace on a quiet beach. Or it is a cold and stark bracelet on the wrist of a chilly Ice Queen.

Tranquility Necklace

Don't be afraid to mix with other colors. We think a gorgeous pairing is mixing Blue Depths with the cooler blue tone of Sleet. You can create multi-strand necklaces that use other colors as complements or even braid and macrame your beading wire. There is a rich tone to jewelry that uses color playfully.

2020 Fall/Winter Pantone Color - Fired Brick

Garnet And Glitz Necklace

Fired Brick aligns magnificently with our Garnet color beading wire. This is another fabulous color choice for fall or expressive holiday jewelry and decor. Pair this tone with Military Olive for handmade ornaments and crafts. Pair it with the exciting bling of golds and silvers for the braided necklace shown. This beautiful color is a solid complement to an earthy brown fall necklace. The decadent color of a roaring hearth and the fiery passion of a Valentine's Day, Fired Brick is a timeless tone that will never go out of style.

Garnet And Glitz Necklace 12

Fired Brick is luscious choice for illusion jewelry where the beading wire is exposed for much of the design. It is also a supreme color option for an earring made with beading wire. Add this tone to your beading supplies and you will always have a radiant element to add to a jewelry design.

2020 Fall/Winter Pantone Color - Sleet

Sleet is the color of our Tanzanite beading wire. Sleet is the cold rain sheeting across the wet pavement. Sleet is the soft sleeve of a denim shirt. Sleet is the perfect summer sky and the untainted shore of a cold mountain lake. This wonderful color is the muted and quiet complement to Blue Depths. Both colors are similar, but they express different feelings. We also loved the look of Sleet with our White Quartz. These two colors are fantastic for a chilly pair of earrings.

This color has enough character to stand on it's own. But it is so wonderful as a voice in a chorus of colors. Sleet will look amazing with bone and wood on sun burned skin on a hot summer morning. Sleet evokes a cold morning under warm blankets. How does this color make you feel?
