We’re All Ears: Greenery, the Pantone Colour of the Year!

I meant to post this yesterday but time got away with me, that’s school holidays for you! Anyway, this month’s challenge for the Earrings Everyday blog was to use Pantone’s Colour of the Year, Greenery. Erin helpfully provided a few colour palettes featuring the colour, which is a really lovely spring green, symbolic of new beginnings (and oh how apt that is this weekend!).


Now, you might have seen this pair of earrings in last week’s Muffin Tin Challenge, but here they are again. The charms come from the talented torch of Cathleen Zaring and they are just bursting with green! The lampwork dangle comes from Lesley McIver, and the copper earwires are from The Curious Bead Shop.


If you pop over to the Earrings Everyday blog here, you’ll find the links to the other participants in the challenge. Thanks to Erin for another great challenge, hopefully I’ll do more of them this year!

  1. I liked these when I saw them in the Muffin Tin Challenge post. Now that they are surrounded by all the other eye candy from that post, no rush to see the next piece, I find that I appreciate them even more after taking the time to look at every feature you added in

  2. Such a pretty pair of earrings! I love those enameled pieces. So intricate on an intriguing shape. Always so pleased to have you join in the fun! It is more fun when we can see what everyone around the world is doing! Enjoy the day! Erin

  3. Sorry I’m so late hopping…it’s been crazy town in my life lately! I just adore this pair of earrings with all the luscious greens and wonderful artisan components. Gorgeous!!
