Every year Pantone releases it’s color of the year and 2013’s color is Emerald Green (PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald to be exact.)Emerald Green Pantone Color of 2013

“Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.”
Pantone website

OK, so I’m about 17 days late (or more) on this information, however, I’m so happy about this. I love green! All green’s and I think emerald is one of the most wearable, flattering and soothing colors out there.

Green is the most commonly found color in nature and it’s one of the most calming as well. For centuries green has been used to represent renewal and healing. We’re now starting into 2013 and this new era, it’s perfect that the color of the year should be emerald green.

There are so many ways to incorporate emerald green into your wardrobe and your life. If you’re a bit timid about green you can start with a small pendant or bracelet. If you’re a bit more daring you can go with emerald nails or go all the way with an emerald dress, cardigan or just add a touch of emerald with a great pair of shoes.

Be sure to look for up coming DIY’s, where I’ll be using Emerald Green to celebrate this beautiful color of the year.

One of the things I love the most about jewelry is its sculptural properties. Like wearing a piece of art. It can be a real conversation starter and a great way to express your personal style.

You really feel like McGuyver melting spoons over a candle.

Spoon Rose Pin DIY
It has been brought to my attention that melting plastic spoons releases a toxic gas that is very dangerous to breathe. When I did this project I knew that it was something to be careful of and I melted the spoons in an area by an open window with a lot of ventilation.
It is your choice whether or not you choose to make this project, but please be aware of the dangers of melting plastic. If you do choose to make it I would suggest if it’s possible to do it outside and make sure that the plastic does not catch on fire.
There are many types of plastics and a lot of information on the web about melting plastic.
