Are you ready to dance?  Tangerine Tango is an energetic color that adds a pop to any jewelry design.  Go all out with a sun kissed creation or add in bits of the orange as accents.  Pair tangerine up with teal and grey for the modern palette.  Or go with greens and browns for an earthy creation.  Pick a sherbet colorway and add in yellows, pinks and purples for a combination that is ready for spring.

I'm feeling sunny already!

I love this color! I look horrible in it, but I still love it.

Thanks for sharing the lovely bead treasury!

I was never really overtly fond of orange, especially with it being one of my high school's colors, but I am finding new love for it. You just gave 16 more reasons to love it! What beautiful components! I think they're just GREAT!

Love that Tangerine Tango. Was so pleased and surprised to find my pendant in the mix. Wow!! Thanks so for including me.

YUM! That is a delicious palette!

I love this orange. And you picked some great finds in Tangerine. I have some beads from SueBeads that are basically this color and after seeing several posts about Tangerine being the color of the year, I've been trying to figure out how I want to use them.

Alice you can add some tangerine to an outfit in a neutral color for a little pop of spring. I can't wear lots of orange either, but a little sprinkled in does my winter-soaked rear some good!

Andrew I hear you on the school colors. You'll never catch me wearing purple and gold.

Mary - you had a few yummy orange pieces in your shop that caught my eye.

Those Suebeads were awesome! I was hoping she had some in her shop when I put together the treasury, but alas you beady peeps swiped those up very quickly!

I'm liking the Tangerine color, too. I can't wear it either, but it's gonna be fun to work into my jewelry designs.

I'm also really loving Pantone's Cabaret (pink) this season, too - better than last season's pink! (who's name we will not speak!) :)

I think that as fashion conscious consumers as well as jewelry artists we need to remember that to keep ourselves and our creations fashion forward, using just a bit of the Pantone selection colors keeps us fresh and current.

The cheapest and easiest way is to use the colors in accessories: shoes, handbags, scarves, and JEWERLY. If we keep those colors in our designs it should enhance sales, whether we personally like the colors or not
