The color choices for these earrings are based on wading through shallow water at the beach. Soft sand, clear blue water, shiny ripples and water worn stones.
At first I was not sure if I would follow the color challenge selection. I'm in the midst of coming up with pieces that are more Fall friendly. So I checked Patone's Fall 2011 Forecast and found that the colors fit.
Center stage are Blue Quartz briolettes. To pick up some of the other colors I added Swarovski Sand Opal, Greige and Sapphire.
