PANTONE-CADMIUM-ORANGEFor our Color of the Month Challenge for August we choose Cadmium Orange from Pantone’s Fall Color Report.

Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director at the Pantone Color Institute®, says Cadmium Orange “evokes a sentiment of optimism, fun and fantasy. Both playful and sophisticated in its appeal, Cadmium Orange is a warm, welcoming and subtly dramatic orange shade that is striking enough to stand on its own or act as a bold contrast.”Cadmium Orange multiple objects

Cadmium Orange works well with all the earthy neutrals in the Fall Color Report, use it as a bold pop of color in your designs paired with Stormy Weather or Dried Herb. We’ve chosen to feature it with Biscay Bay thread and gold seed beads in a wrapped cord bracelet.Cadmium-Orange-GiveawayOur Inspiration Gallery has a great selection of designs that feature Cadmium Orange hues!

Look back at our past month’s colors for even more color inspiration! In January we were inspired by the color of the year, Marsala. In February we fell in love with Strawberry Ice. March was filled with icy Aquamarine. And in April we were inspired by buttery yellow Custard. May was minty with Lucite Green. Classic Blue swept us away in June. Amethyst Orchid was purple perfection in July. Keep following along throughout the year! Coming up we will inspire you with Biscay Bay, Stormy Weather, Dried Herb and Marsala.

Happy Beading! – Katie
