Finding Inspiration by Using Pantone Colors

 

Pantone is best known for its Pantone Matching System (PMS), a proprietary color space used in a variety of industries, primarily printing, though sometimes in the manufacture of colored paint, fabric, and plastics.

Living Coral

This engaging hue captures the playfulness, optimism and joyful pursuits embodied in nature. Living Coral’s glorious, yet elusive presence beneath the sea mesmerizes us with its vivifying and effervescent color. Found at the center of a naturally rich ecosystem, Living Coral evokes the nurturing presence our precious coral reefs provide to a kaleidoscope of sea life.

When the color were first posted on-line from Pantone, I thought how am I going to use these colors in my gemstone and silver designs. Will they look good in metal? Little did I realize the answer would be easy. I already made a ring using Imperial Topaz.

I am thrilled to be working with the Pantone colors.
