We're All Ears :: January

Our inspiration is the Pantone 2015 Fashion Colors for Spring
I was going to make a pair of earrings for each color but that proved to be too much.

 For the custard color:
'Sunset Cruise'
Ceramic drops from Scorched Earth
Burnt Horn beads, tiny glass beads from The Spacer Bead Shop
Patina beads from Miss Ficklemedia & brass earwires from Vintaj.

For the blues I put them together:
'North Wind'
Ceramic Beads from Grubbi
Swarvoski Crystals, and Vintaj Brass drops

For Marsala;
'Red, Red Wine'
Glass beads from my stash
Tiny glass beads from the Spacer Bead Shop
 And Vintaj brass drops and earwires

For the Lavender Herb:
'Lavender Field'
Two frosted beads from Fire and  Fibers
Green Fluorite beads
Tiny purple beads from the Spacer Bead Shop

For Lucite Green and Tangerine:
Green Czech Beads
Tiny orange beads from the Bead Spacer Shop
Tiny blue spacers, sorry I don't know the artist
Purple beads and brass flower drops

For Toasted Almond:
Two ceramic beads from Grubbi
Everything is from Vintaj

You really embraced this challenge with lots of the colors being used in your creations. Well done! I especially like the first pair. I like the color and I love Scortched Earth beads. A real winner.

What a lovely collection. Like you, I was quite inspired to play with all of the colors. I am in LOVE with the first pair - gorgeous colors. The colors in the Lavender Field pair are a breath of sweet summer air. All are lovely. I will be bopping to the song "Red Red Wine" all day. :)

Wow, so many wonderful designs.

I love "wind" the best.

I too am drawn to the first pair as I am a huge fan of Scorched Earth. I love how you have put the colours together and come up with very different designs. All lovely! xx

Love love all the earrings...and the psychedelic one speaks to the 60's child in me.

Wow, such beautiful earrings! The first ones look like they were pulled right out of the palette chart. Perfect colour combination and great composition. I really like all of them but the marsala ones particularly appeal to me.Classic and elegant.

Your earrings are all great. I really like all of them.

I think my favourites are the North Wind earrings. Those brass drops are a great interpretation of the "breath of the wind".

My next favourite pair are the Red Red Wine earrings. Frankly though I would be hard pressed if I had to pick one only.

Well, you were a busy lady! My favorites are Sunset Cruise (who can resist Petra's drops?) and North Wind. Lovely ear bobs!

Unknown said...

Wow! Is right! I really like the lavander pair they make me want spring to be here! They have a light freshness about them!

What a great collection you've created!They're just a perfectly happy expression of spring -- some of the Pantone shades didn't really grab me, but your work is making me rethink all of that. Lovely stuff!

You've done a wonderful job! So many earrings and they all are beautiful! My absolutely favorites are "North Wind" and the last pair. Love your bead choices!

Look at you go! I love the way you have paired up the colors. Each is so cool. But my favorite is the first pair, Sunset Cruise. I have a hard time with yellow, wearing and making with it, but this is something I could totally see me wearing! Thanks for joining in the We're All Ears challenge for January. Check back on February 6th for the next inspiration! Enjoy the day. Erin
