Honey Do Color Challenge

 Sarajo Spurrgeon Wentling challenged by her husband this month, with this photo and the colors he pulled from it. Sarajo then asked a few designers if we'd like to play along. I thank Mr. Wentling for the inspiring challenge, I thank Sarajo for the invite to play along and here we go.  These were some of the color components that I selected. The center of the flower leans more to Burgundy or a Dark brown but I wanted Black (Artistic Liscense)

First up Earrings, the black hats I showed last friday meet three group challenges this month and its a first for me. Earrings Everyday third friday of the month you make earrings from an inspiration Photo. B'sue Boutiques Creative Group Finished up Friday.  I had a lot finished but could not post everything to the reveal of the Honey Do Challenge, lol.Thats what Sarajo has named the Challenge.

Then I made more earrings from the gems, pearls and spectra beads from the necklace.

Using the Orange and Greens from Photo

One of the challenges for myself this year is smaller simpler designs. Every Necklace does not have to be a large Statement piece. It can be a mini, lol.
So this Necklace is Dainty full of color for the Ladies who dont like big showy pieces.  However my heart needed to create that statement piece.
Nice piece of Jade with gold and Honey Agate gemstones,Carnelian gemstone rounds, Olive green glass pearls, light green glass Spectra beads, Large Brass flowers all from B'sue Boutique as well as the BlackDesigner finish Brass used in this collection.

I was unable to complete bracelet in time for reveal but that will be in my shop by friday as well as the earrings.  Lets hop and see what the designers have created.

We're All Ears ::February Reveal


This Brass statue is the Inspiration this month. When I first saw this inspiration photo it did nothing for me. I kept going back every few days staring at it. Then I noticed the hint of turquoise. Then I saw the waves, I just gave up.  Then this week I looked again and said silly Sherlock, its all about the metal, the brass.  So I pulled out some brass flowers of which I am so fond of. Then we all love pearls and I had some gold ones aquired from Pine Ridge Treasures. Then I spied these gemstones with waves of goldtones and shine. So elegant and they can be purchased HERE

Since it's all about the brass for me and I had the flowers out on my workstation  I decided to decorate these Black brass Top hats purchased from B'Sue Boutiques, are they not just fab!

Hope you enjoyed the workings of my mind, lol and these earrings can be purchased HERE
