For this month's We're All Ears challenge, we have been challenged to create earrings to accessorize a look from the fall fashion runways. Erin Prais-Hintz found a great collection of looks from designer Monique Lhuillier's fall line. She chose a trio of looks from two different color themes. I love the rich colors and immediately thought that some Swarovski pearls might be just the ticket for this month's challenge.
For this wine colored trio, I pulled some of my Bordeaux colored Swarovski pearls (one of my favorites!) I originally thought I'd do a two tier style with two sizes of the pearls... something similar to a pair I made for myself ages ago with brass instead of silver. But then my eyes rested on some oval pewter links that I've never played with. I decided that they would add a more casual feel to the earrings while still giving a dramatic effect. I think that they would look cute with outfit A or possibly C (but the coat's collar might get in the way of the dangles!)
For the purple mini-collection, I went with a more sleek and paired down look with a larger sized Swarovski pearl in dark purple with silver plated "pringles" and lighter purple crystals. I feel like the simplicity of the beads on the long arched ear wires feels elegant and would pair well with either look D or F.
