Can't help myself!
Am I precog or what? Emerald! 2013 Pantone Color of the Year? I knocked these babies out fast, huh? Just kidding. These beauties were designed for a Brea Bead Works class just held a couple of weeks ago. Wendy Remmers who co-owns the store sends out email snippets on trends. She sent one in the Fall calling for big, dramatic earrings for the Winter Session. I had just designed them and knew they'd be perfect for a class. I call them Diva Earrings. Ironically, the peacock seed beads were the inspiration and I knew that I had some Emerald Swarovski teardrops in my stash. Just in time for Color of the Year! One of my students asked in class if I was going to sell the pair I was making in class. They weren't perfect, so I said "no, but the green pair I'll sell". I think not. I'm gonna put these on today and show off my green pride! It helps that I'm part Irish! Erin go braugh! Or, as the lads in Ireland would say, "Erin go braugh-less"! ;)
