Color Challenge

Well, today is the reveal day for the Challenge of Color 2011 hosted by the lovely Erin of Treasures Found.   Now there are many wonderful bloggers taking part in this blog hop, so click over to Treasures Found for the full list and start hopping.  I will be visiting all the blog starting Thursday (my next day off)!  Here are the few pieces I managed to get completed.  I do have a couple others in process and in my head so will be continuing this color scheme for a little while longer.

Now here is the picture I received to use as inspiration!

Here is the Bracelet I completed:
I know it is hard to tell (sorry for the horrible night pictures) but those green beads are a gorgeous sea green!

Here is Earring #1
 Earring #2



Earrings # 3


I will be replacing these horrible  pictures tomorrow morning, if possible.  Thank you for visiting!

  6. Your palette and bracelet are beautiful. I would have added a hint of the mustard in the bracelet for it to be perfect. Maybe tiny seed beads or tiny bi- cone crystals?

  11. That was clever to use red wire, for a little extra punch of color! I chose "red" too, and I think I would have struggled with this palette, but you did great.

  32. Very pretty jewellery and a great interpretation of your palette! My fave's the first pair of earrings. I like that the design is simple, but with finishing touches (i.e. the bead caps) that really make them more than just simple. Well done!
