Fall Fashion Colors In Delica Beads

Fall Fashion Colors

Pantone® does fashion color reports for the seasons based on runway fashion color trends. Tangerine Tango for example was a color that became very popular for spring, and is still very trendy.

Here are my suggestions for Delica beads to match the above palette. They include a variety of finishes, and also some great metallics to create edgier or more formal looks.

French Roast:
DB 612 Silver Lined Smoke Topaz
DB 506 Dark Gold Topaz 24k (metallic)

Honey Gold:
DB 181 Silver Lined Golden Copper
DB 1833 Duracoat Galvanized Yellow Gold (metallic)

Pink Flambé:
DB 1371 Dyed Opaque Rose
DB 246 Cotton Candy Pink Pearl

Tangerine Tango:
DB 682 Semi-Matte S/L Orange
DB 43 Silver Lined Burnt Orange
DB 45 Silver Lined Orange

Ultramarine Green:
DB 607 Silver Lined Teal
DB 1847 Duracoat Galvanized Sea Foam (metallic)

Bright Chartreuse:
DB 903 Lined Crystal Shimmer Lt Green Gold
DB 1835 Duracoat Galvanized Zest (metallic)

Olympian Blue:
DB 1230 Transparent Azure Luster
DB 1210 Silver Lined Azure

Titanium:
DB 1772 Sparkle Pewter Lined Crystal AB
DB 21 Steel (metallic)

Rhapsody:
DB 1473 Transparent Pale Orchid Luster

Rose Smoke:
DB 1433 S/L Pale Blush

These colors can be used in various color schemes or used with neutral colors like black or white. They cover a lot of tones so it's better to use a dark neutral or a dark color from the palette between two colors that are close in tone. When it comes to beads, sometimes colors that are analogous (close on the color wheel) will nearly blend when put with beads with a similar tone or finish.

Suggested color schemes include:
Analogous:
Pink Flambé, Rose Smoke, Tangerine Tango
French Roast, Rose Smoke,Pink Flambé
Ultramarine Green, Olympian Blue and Bright Chartreuse
Honey Gold, French Roast and Ultramarine Green
Olympian Blue, Rhapsody and Rose Smoke

Complementary:
Pink Flambé, Ultramarine Green
Ultramarine Green, Rose Smoke
Rose Smoke, Bright Chartreuse
Olympian Blue, Honey Gold
Olympian Blue, French Roast
Olympian Blue, Tangerine Tango
Honey Gold, Rhapsody

Triadic:
Tangerine Tango, Rhapsody and either Ultramarine Green or Bright Chartreuse
Olympian Blue, Honey gold, and either Rose Smoke or Pink Flambé

Another fashion forecast is mixed patterns, so it's a good time to stack thinner bracelets with dots, stripes and chevrons. I hope you enjoy these bracelet patterns. Each is a separate file, right click and save as, then print. You can change up the colors if you'd like. Have fun! Work from the middle out to make it the right length for your wrist.
