This month's We're All Ears challenge is jumping on the Pantone Color of the Year bandwagon... Erin has challenged us to make earrings using hues from the spring color forecast... not necessarily just in shades of Rose Quartz and Serenity. I think I've said it before, but I'm really not a huge fan of this year's Color(s) of the year. I just don't get the appeal of baby pink and blue together, but I love a challenge so I'm going to try and play along!
When I was digging through my "craftermath" for my late entry for last month's challenge I did find a few beads that I had set aside for earrings that sort of work for this challenge. A while back I had been playing with some Vintaj brass pieces and little pearl dangles. I had started sorting sets of coordinating pearls from a mixed strand but then, as things tend to go, I got distracted and moved on to other projects.
I made use of one of those little sets that were in shades of pinky-purple and blue. The colors aren't perfectly "Rose Quartz" and "Serenity" but I think they're close enough to count! I was originally thinking I might add some paint to the the brass pieces, but I ran out of time and energy. Anyway, less is often more!
