Theme of the Month: “Lush Meadow”






TREND

If you’ve ever wondered why certain colors suddenly hit our radars, pop up on runways, appear in stores, and even segue into interior design, nine times out of ten it’s the people at the Pantone Color Institute in New Jersey, USA, who are behind it. Every season they come up with a new palette that reflects the current mood—in fact, designers and brands swear by their color predictions. This is why “Lush Meadow” has grabbed our attention—an intense, saturated shade of green that’s rich and elegant, with a depth of color that brings to mind “fresh botanicals and foliage,” to quote Pantone.

This is a gorgeous shade that flatters every skin tone, and we’re going to be seeing it a lot this fall. So, surf the green trend and make a choker that will raise your glamour game sky-high; a pair of boots with crystal-embellished heels that will put a spring in your step and draw covetous stares; statement earrings that are both classy and wildly sexy at the same time; and even botanical-themed nail art. This is one color that’s going to stay around for a long time.

TECHNIQUES

Gluing with Ceralun™: Ceralun is a type of clay consisting of a high-performance, two-component ceramic epoxy composite. It’s a strong, versatile alternative to gluing, and enables you to apply Swarovski crystals to metal, glass, crystal, rubber, wood, cork, porcelain, 3D-shaped surfaces, and glue-able plastic surfaces. What’s more, you can position crystals as close together as you like in your designs. Ceralun takes 72 hours to harden at room temperature, a gentle build-up of adhesion that serves to protect crystals’ mirrored surface. The result is durable, rigid, shock absorbent, resistant to perspiration and humidity, and great for creating a variety of surfaces and structures. Year after year, your design will look like new.
