2016 Pantone colour of the year

I look forward to finding out what Pantone will name colour of the year, every year. I don’t always love what’s selected but I do enjoy seeing more and more of that colour appear in our day to day lives and enjoy watching home decor and fashion trends incorporate it as the year moves forward. Sometimes it can be fun to track trends.

This year Pantone selected a blend of two colours for their colour(s) of 2016, rose quartz and serenity (http://www.pantone.com/color-of-the-year-2016)

I expect we will see lots of this combination come the Spring and Summer. When I first saw it, I instantly imagined a flow-y gauzy summer dress blowing softly in a warm summer breeze. If only I knew how to design clothing!

I have to say that I love this combination and plan to challenge myself to use these colours in some upcoming jewellery designs. This combination makes me feel calm, what does it inspire in you? We’d love to hear from you in comments!

Made just for YOU!

What do you think when I say “custom”? If you’re thinking of having something custom made, you may be thinking that it will cost a small fortune. That might be true when talking about mass produced items, but here at Drakestail Jewellery, we do things a little differently.

We do custom work. We LOVE custom work! There’s a great feeling knowing exactly where your hard work is going, and that it’s going to be PERFECT!

You probably know by now that everything we create is lovingly hand made. Very few pieces AREN’T one of a kind. So what’s the difference between what we’re selling and that perfect design floating around inside your head? Not much, really.

So, the big question… how do we charge custom orders? Same way we charge everything else. If you found it in your head or in our booth, it’s the same. There’s no need for us to charge more because our basic process hasn’t changed.
