Each year, Pantone (the leading color authority) releases their top choice for the color of the year.  This color dictates the trends for so many different industries – fashion, accessories, home decor, marketing, events…the list goes on and on.  Pantone has announced their 2017 color of the year and it is…..GREENERY!!!  According to Pantone, Greenery reminds one of the need to reconnect with nature, each other, and the larger world.  It also represents the opportunity to rejuvenate, revitalize, and begin anew, just as nature does.

Feeling inspired by this new color, I ran around the store today grabbing all sorts of “Greenery” beads.  Here’s my haul:

Isn’t it beautiful??  Keep in mind that your interpretation of Greenery can vary – there is not one right answer!!  As you see here, there are multiple shades of green that can be used as “Greenery”.  The key is to stick with the general feel and intention.
