Pantone Fall 2015 Fashion Color Recipes for Reflecting Pond and Stormy Weather

Reflecting Pond and Stormy Weather are two of the Pantone Fall 2015 Fashion colors that are very much related to each other.  Reflecting Pond is described as a "cooling blue with a lot of depth" and Stormy Weather as a "powerful blue gray".

These are both classic shades for winter and combine well with all of the other Pantone fall colors which is what makes them more versatile.

Here are some interchangeable "snap" cabochons in the Reflecting Pond color silkscreened with a Liquitex metallic (iridescent light) silver paint.  The silkscreen we used here was "Spring Dance" by Helen Breil.   I have some samples of how the snaps look on the various findings with the snap base available in our online shop.
