Pantone recently announced their 2015 Color of the Year. Marsala is a deep earthy red with warm tones that will pair well with a multitude of other colors. In the above image, I have gathered a bunch of items that capture Marsala perfectly. From beads to stringing materials, to feathers, crystals and pendants , even our own Shipwreck Beads t-shirts! There are lots of options available for you to get a jump on your Marsala colored beading and jewelry creations.
As we head into spring, Marsala is a bold choice that can be paired with pastels and other neutral tones. It will work with feminine florals and can easily be transformed into more edgy looks. As evidenced at this weekends Golden Globe awards, Marsala will also make a huge impact in makeup and fashion. Check out our board on Pinterest with all kinds of color inspiration featuring Marsala.
For the above necklace, I paired 4mm round Swarovski crystal pearls in Bordeaux with rose gold components. The deep wine color of the beads pairs well with the rose gold. I chose a delicate chain and crystal links for a delicate necklace just a little longer than your average choker. I used the following materials: 12 in chain, 11 pc 3mm jump rings, 1pc 4mm jump ring, 1pm lobster clasp, 6pc eye pins, 6pc 4mm crystal pearl, and 5pc crystal connector. Assembling the necklace is easy, you just need to make beaded links with the beads and head pins and then connect it all together with jump rings!
