Lime Green and Ocean Blue

Living in the Pacific Northwest means lots and lots of grey during the vibrant colors call to me. (Not in a gentle beckoning sort of way, it's more like "Hey, you! Come here now!)

Orange? Love it. Red? Gotta have it. Bright cobalt blue? I'm all over that action, baby.

One of my favorite color combos is lime green and ocean blue - these colors are juicy and cheerful, without the intense energy that fiery colors like orange and red bring to the table. Lime green packs a little punch and creates interest, while ocean blue provides the perfect counterpoint.

I created the following earrings with this color scheme in mind. They feature my own lime green lampwork beads, sterling silver, freshwater pearls in lime green and ocean blue, and Swarovski crystals in various shades of blue and green. The earrings are very lightweight and dangly, and sparkle in the light as you move. Enjoy!

The Day After...

I love the day AFTER Thanksgiving...because I can have pumpkin pie for breakfast...because I don't have to dress up for dinner...and especially because I don't have to cook.

I used my freedom from the kitchen today to list some of my earrings and lampwork beads in my ArtFire shop. I have about a dozen pairs of lampwork and sterling silver earrings priced at $18, including shipping.
