pantone color of the year 2014 radiant orchid

Pantone's color of the year for 2014 is a vivid Radiant Orchid and I've been playing a bit with the color.  My first piece was a simple four part braid just to see how the the different shades work together.

I felt like my warm up piece read a bit too pink, so for my next piece, I concentrated more on the purple side of things.  I knotted a spiral using three shades of orchid and a bit of olive for some contrast.

I tied on a pendant with a polymer clay bead by Barbara Bechtel and a pendant by Humblebeads.

The bead caps I found mimic the flower petal/leaf theme.


The floral motif is topped off with the sterling silver clasp.

  3. Now, this is how to wear Radiant Orchid! I have not been a fan of this year's color...until now. I just love how you've paired it with that deep purple and neutral olive. Terrific piece!
