We're All Ears :: January Reveal


Today I accepted the We're All Ears challenge on the Earrings Everyday site and have made a pair of earrings in the new Pantone colors.  There are two colors of the year for 2016 - Rose Quartz and Serenity - basically a soft pink and a soft blue.  I happen to like both of these colors and have created jewelry in both, but I have never combined them.  

Going through my stash of beads, I found this combination that I liked:  a frosted rose quartz faceted glass rondelle, an sapphire glass faceted cube with an AB finish and a clear pink E bead.  The AB finish on the blue glass picks up the pinks in the other beads.

Soft and Serene Earrings
These colors would be great for a wedding.  Making more of this same dangle and a vintage brass chandelier finding would be very elegant.  For a bolder look, add in the brighter pink or the darker blue from the 2016 Pantone colors.  Here's the full palette:

I think there are plenty of nice color combinations to last the year! That aqua and the tan, aqua and green and yellow, the grayish blue with the rose....yep, lots to work with!
Happy Creating!


  1. Oh wow! Dainty and perfect to the palette. I just love them. Great Job!

  2. Soft and those frosted pink beads!

  3. I love wearing pink and these are so pretty.

  4. I am not sure that I am sold on this years' palette. I find the colors a bit off-putting. But the rose quartz and serenity is growing on me. I haven't been able to mesh them together well, but I will keep at it! I think your style is very classic and feminine. Thanks for playing along with me in the We're All Ears challenge on Earrings Everyday. Check back on Feb 5th for our next inspiration! Enjoy the day! Erin
