What color is your Aqua?

I heard someone say yesterday that lime is a hot color this summer!   (As far as I'm concerned,  lime should be popular year around every year!)  

Before that, I heard that orange is the "it" color this season.  

Frankly, I adore aqua every summer, it reminds me of the ocean, ....which frankly, I just don't see enough of living in Kansas!

I know color trends are very important in jewelry design.   Many people follow those trends, buy clothing in the trend colors, and look for jewelry to complement their look.     So it's really important to keep up with the "limes" and the "oranges!"

But I suspect that most of us also have our "aquas."   Favorite colors that call out to us repeatedly.  Colors that we feel comfortable with or happy around.  That we always know we can design well with.   So today, I'm simply wondering....

"What color is your 'aqua?'"  

Any special reason you are fond of that color?

Please share your comments!

Have a great Saturday!

Hi, Sharyl. Great post. As you probably know already, "aqua" is my "aqua"! Also love periwinkle and teal.

I love all these colors! Aqua has been one of my favorites for a long time now, and like you say, there's not enough of it here in Kansas!

I'm loving the new neon Swarovski colors but haven't bought any yet. They're all sold out everwhere I look.

And I never get tired of brown paired with most colors.

my color mood changes a lot and at this moment i'm very fond of mustard, jeans blue, the combination blue and orange and yellow.

But i don't bother if the color is (' in ' or noyt i have to like it, i don't care what the fashion police says

Hi Sharyl! Just to let you know I'm popping in but like with many things, be it beautiful wool yarns for knitting, patchwork fabrics, now jewellery components, I get so confused with having to make a choice with COLOUR. I love colours, but I love so many of them too. To hone in on any one is really really difficult. Blue/aqua though I like it, doesn't do much FOR me though I don't think. I'd err on the side of burnt orange I reckon. Pennies worth, just to let you know I'm here ...and thinking "what colour do I like" Ugh, it's so hard

Thank you all for responding! What delightful answers! Glad I asked!

I am drawn to anything in any shade of blue or bluish-green. I went clothes shopping with my Mom yesterday and came home with three navy tops. I try to branch out, but it rarely happens.

My aqua is definitely aqua along with teal and the deeper greens.
