The color of 2012 - Tangerine Orange

By JET Member BeadzNBling

Color - is it in your mind, do you see the same color I see?
Color can help define an object but when combined with
creative names, will help the imagination process what
a person is thinking out a color in their mind.

This is part 5 in a series of blog posts at on how to creatively
express color when listing your items for sale on websites
like,, and so on. I know I
get in a real creative funk when trying to come up with new
and exciting names so I started a never ending master color
list and have decided to share it with my fellow artisans.

Keep in mind as you go through these colors there is a
possibility not all keywords will fit within Etsy's character limits
so you may have to modify them. Also note that
does not like some words - for example, cabernet whiskey -
so you may wish to read their SEO (search engine optimization) hints.

As you all know, SEO is why we do these tasks in great detail.
Search engines send spiders out to find similar names or terms
to what you may have entered in the toolbar search box. This series of
blog posts should help you with your color entries when doing listings
on,, etc.

If you have any color suggestions you think should be added to the master,
please sign in below and leave a comment. We would LOVE to hear
from you. Please 'follow us' for the remainder of the series of color keywords.

Lynn, this is AB FAB ... I am all about color and try to express it well, although I fail to do it as creatively as this portrays. These words are especially important for shoppers and treasury makers.

Wonderful series!!
