|Pantone Solar Yellow|
The next color I wanted to showcase is Solar Yellow, which Pantone describes as "…providing a jolt of energy…and radiates warmth and cheer." (That jolt is just what I needed to jump start this series again too! ;-D)
I love this color because I am not partial to primary colors, but love it when a bright color has a mix of something else in it to make it more interesting—in this case, just a hint of golden orange sunshine. This gives Solar Yellow a warmth and richness that I think makes it a great color to also carry over into the Autumn season. And that means our fashion dollars will stretch even that much farther this year—which is always a good thing, right?!
This little daisy button has a center of Solar Yellow, with slightly raised bumps to give it some fun interest. I used an odd lot of a glass called Pumpkin Orange by Creation is Messy (CiM) and think it's a perfect match. Wouldn't this look so fresh and sweet as an accessory on a summer headband or a cardigan sweater in the Fall?

Here are some other similar glass colors to consider for making your lampwork beads…
|Mystic Yellow (Reichenbach 104)|
|Doodle Daisies with Translucent Lemon Yellow (Vetrofond)|
|Opal Yellow (Reichenbach 104)|
|Yellow Pastel (Effetre)|
I can see Solar Yellow combined with a wide variety of other summery colors like ruby red, navy blue, or tangerine orange. And in the Fall, it would add a nice pop of color to more subdued earth tones and greens. Now that the sun is finally shining more often these days, I think it's all the inspiration I need to make some fun new bead designs featuring this sunny color too! *Ü*
