In My Studio: Pantone Color of the Year 2016

Every year Pantone launches a color of the year which is set to inspire and influence everything from fashion to home wares for that coming year. In a change from tradition this year Pantone has named a blend of two colors Rose Quartz and Serenity as their colors of the year. Pantone says that their selection is
A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.
By using Pantones suggested colors of the year designers and makers can tap into new trends in the marketplace. Etsy itself is likely to pick up on these trends and could potentially use these products in features and Etsy Finds.

Here are some amazing products by our own Makers on Hudson team members that are already showcasing these trends:
Rose Quartz Earrings by Omi Silver
Pink and Silver Brocade Mask by Dara Gallery
Toddler Dress by LaidieCloth

Felt Name Banner by QuarterLifeLuck

Chainmaille bracelet by Pulp Sushi

Glass Pendant Necklace by Get Glassy

Art Print by Digilio Designs
I have put together a treasury with some wonderful handmade items from the Makers on Hudson team in this years 'hot' color Rose Quartz
