Summer Color Inspiration Challenge

My bead mommy, Sharyl is hosting a quick blog hop this week...inspired by the colors of summer. Which are brilliant, vibrant, happy colors :)

She gave us a bunch of inspiration photos, pointed out the colors in them, and we were to pick one (or more) of them and create something.

I am on a yellow binge lately, so I picked this one:


The colors she mentioned were: bright yellow, raspberry and lime. I told her I didn't like the raspberry intruding in here, I want only lemon and lime :)

And here's what I came up with. I surprised myself with this super simple design (I tend to complicate things all the time ;-)




Do I like 'em? Love 'em! They are happy happy things! And I think they go well with this necklace...don't they? Its like an entire summer garden, haha :-)

I wondering if I should change the beads in the necklace and use yellow ones instead!


Thanks for the inspiration and for hosting, Sharyl :-) These earrings make me happy :D

  2. Ooo... I wouldn't change a thing! It all looks just perfect together as is! I'm not a huge fan of yellow either, and I used it and loved it in my piece too! I guess that's the wonder of our challenges!

    I really like your "simple" yellow and green earrings, and your necklace on that daisy ribbon is a perfect summertime match! Thanks for participating, Kashmira! Job well done! ~Sharyl

  7. Dear Kashmira,
    I always look forward to seeing what you have created! You think outside the box, as I always try to do. I love the color yellow and it is clearly joy and happiness in your two pieces. The earrings are so pretty! I love the necklace and the floral motif in the fabric. I do agree with you, that yellow beads would be better based on what you had written about loving the color yellow and playing it up. It's a great necklace and design, love that focal piece, unusual and eye-catching! Thank you for sharing, friend.

    Hugs, Laren

  10. Oh, colours of a lemon tree! Love the earrings and yes, they do go nicely with the necklace in a not-quite matchy-matchy way.
