Pantone 2015 colors – Pendants by BluKatDesign on Etsy

pantone jewelry

Pantone 2015 Colors


This year the colors are softer and cooler. Some have just been renamed like the minty “Lucite Green” but there are new colors like “Marsala” which is a soft burgundy and is considered  the color of the year! I prefer more vibrant colors so this was a fun challenge working with this pallet.  I think I came up with some great color combos for my button pendants using upcycled buttons; I even made a pendant for myself!  I love the retro feel these colors have; perfect compliment to a vintage button. I added colorful ribbon cords to most of my new pendants but you can request stainless steel cords; my favorite and so comfortable to wear!  These cute pendants can go well with vintage or modern fashions and make a great gift! Click on the photos below to see all of my button necklaces!

Handmade Seahawks Jewelry

Seattle Seahawks 12th Woman Fashion


I am not much of a football fan, I prefer baseball. My husband and so many of my friends are really into the Seahawks. Everyone seems to want Seahawks jewelry that is stylish and fun to wear but that is so hard to find!  The Seahawks color combo is a real challenge (for me!)  to make something that is fashionable and feminine but I love challenges! I have made upcycled bobby pin necklaces in the past but now I am having fun with Seahawks button pendants, earrings and rings! Most of the items I make are one-of-a-kind, made with vintage buttons so if you see something you like, you better grab it while you can; just click on the photos to go to my Etsy shop!

Handmade Repurposed Vintage Button Necklace Pendants

Handmade Repurposed Vintage Button Necklace Pendants

I love collecting interesting buttons and making  ( or upcycling into) simple stacked button pendants for everyday using both new and vintage buttons. It is a challenge finding cool new and vintage buttons that are unique and that will fit into my pendant bezels. The big brass button in the center I had since I was a kid so I decided to keep it, all of the others you can find in my Etsy jewelry and gift store plus more!  My favorite buttons are the antique mirrored filigree brass, patterned lucite and shimmery mother of pearl.  These button necklace pendants are so fun to make, nothing here is mass produced. Most of these pendants are one of a kind or very limited; it just depends on my button stash! I also love making button earrings and magnet sets too!
