Sweet Serendipity

I have been playing around with different series of late. That is so very unlike me. Usually I make one of something and then get bored with it. But I had these great little floral stampings in my stash and was experimenting with the colors of metal patinas and I just couldn't stop myself. And so these dainty yet bold earrings were born.

They look like those woven tapestry ribbon to me. And I happened to find matching beads in my stash as well. I find them girly but with a pop of color. Sweet serendipity.


Maybe I was influenced by the Pantone 2013 color palette (although not all the colors in my earrings are represented here... or are they?). I actually did have that Lemon Zest color, but I pulled them because one was lighter than the other. I must have been diluting the paint at that point. And I actually do have a color close to Linen. But I am still trying for that Poppy color. Mine is more rust. Still... I made all these before I even spied the color forecast. A true happy accident.



I am feeling generous. I would like to give away one of these pairs of earrings to one random commenter. You pick the Pantone color and I will make them just for you! My next post is scheduled for January 22nd. I will announce a winner of any one of these earrings on that date.

How about multiple ways to win? I like the number three, don't you? Each comment is one entry up to three per person will be considered.

1::FOLLOW Earrings Everyday and leave a comment that you do.
2::SHARE Earrings Everyday with your peeps: tweet, Facebook, blog, skywriting, smoke signals, sandwich board, billboard... pick one and tell me what you did.
3::SELECT your favorite Pantone color from this palette. Or combination. What colors speak to you? What are you most surprised to see here? Is there a color that is growing on you? Do tell!

And do be sure to have a way for me to contact you to arrange your prize. I will announce the winner on January 22nd!

  3. I like the 4 cool shades of Pantone colors that are grouped together on the left side of your image. I think those colors would look awesome dyed together on yarn. Hmmmm, maybe I'll have to try that!

  4. Lovely earrings! Love the African Violet, thou the Nectarine is gorgeous also!

  5. I love these, all of the colors are beautiful. I think I'd pick the nectarine, but it's very hard to decide on 1 favorite.

  6. I LOVE these earrings, especially the turquoise hued ones and the purple ones and the blue and the orange! Goodness, I love them all!

    I honestly can't decide on a favorite Pantone color. I love color in general, so it is really difficult. Today, lemon zest and nectarine are calling to me. Tomorrow, it will be different colors. That is one of the wonderful things about being an artist; we see beauty in a new way every day!

  8. Your earrings are beautiful! I love the shape as well as the colours and the texture. They remind me of little tiles, a little bit with a morrocan touch!

    I would love to wear the one with the light blue shade. Even if the panton palette refers to a dust blue (which is also beautiful) I think it is a little bit more to the side of a rich turqoise. But I love both colours! :)

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  16. It's very hard to choose a single favorite or single favorite combination so, I'll just tell you what is speaking to me at this particular moment (could change in a flash!).

    I think that Poppy Red, Lemon Zest, & Nectarine are wonderful together because they make me think of summer on this gray, overcast day.

    Thank you for the chance to win a pair of earrings! I would love emerald, dusk blue, or African Violet--a surprise would be nice. :)

  24. Hello again!

    I would have to say that orange is slowly growing on me. Tangerine Tango was last year's color of the year & it helped to push my designs into untried colors...though I'm still shy of bright yellow.

  27. I love all the colors, however the emerald and poppy red are tops, then the african violet. I have beads that would compliment these colors and I think they would look great with my copper clasps and earrings I am now making.

  38. As for the Pantone colours, I'm a sucker for shades of purple so I'm immediately drawn to African Violet, perhaps with a pop of Lemon Zest or Nectarine. But the 3 different greens are also lovely colours and ones I can see myself using.

  54. Gorgeous earrings, Miss Erin! I'm particularly taken by Emerald and Moroccan Blue, but all of them make me happy.

    As for combinations, I'm going to do the unexpected and go for Moroccan Blue, Poppy Red, and Nectarine. Those three together are totally speaking to me.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Love these earrings, Erin. The aqua/tealy ones are speaking to me.
    Re the Pantone colors, I'm partial to emerald since it's my birthstone. But also drawn to linen, tendered shoots and grayed jade.

    ReplyDelete

  66. My two favorite colors on this Pantone chart are the Poppy Red and Monoco Blue. The blue popped out at me first, but I've noticed lately that the jewelry I'm draw to has a bright red component.

    ReplyDelete
  67. So, I am already a follower....

    ReplyDelete
  68. And my favourite Pantone shades are grayed jade, linen and poppy red. I think they'd look pretty sweet together too! Gorgeous earrings Erin, I love the texture coming through the brass.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I love the linen and the african violet but I've got a bit of a thing for deep, inky, indigo shades at the moment so today I'd say the Monaco Blue is my favourite. And the blue earrings are particularly lovely!
