Going Green for March

If someone asked us which color we associate with March, we would have to say green. Besides the obvious reason (Saint Patrick’s Day — just in case it wasn’t that obvious), green also comes to our minds because of all the little green buds that have started to sprout around the Blue Door Beads neighborhood. Granted, we are lucky to live in the San Francisco Bay Area, where spring pretty much started last week, but, for those of you in other parts of the country and the northern hemisphere, spring is coming! March 20th officially marks the spring equinox for everyone, and we are counting down the days!

What else has put us in a green mood? It just so happens that the Pantone Fashion Color Report declared Emerald the Color of the Year for 2013.

We here at Blue Door Beads not only enjoy green beads, but we also wholeheartedly support the idea of “going green,” and we feature several different types of upcycled beads and components. Check ’em out!

Vintage bottle cap beads are funky & playful! They also come in tons of other colors.
