The names of the colors are Jaunty Red, Perfect Harmony, Worn Sail (cream), and Bauhaus Gold.
As a matter of fact, I told my mom about the challenge and she said she wanted to "play" too, so I cut my sample in two and gave her half. Check out her blog too.
So, you want to see wha t I did for my challenge? I Love the colors and was thoroughly taken by them -- even my opening photo (top) shows my inspiration: the Jaunty Red berries of our Yaupon holly bush. The coral and fancy jasper work in Perfect Harmony with the Bauhaus Gold of the faceted citrine. (Sorry, I just couldn't work in the Worn Sail, oh, wait -- I just did!)
Jaunty Red Berries
I was also inspired by two of my favorite Etsy designers: Liz Martin at Mostly Details who sent me a batch of beautiful orphan lampwork beads including these three in the perfect colors and Lynn Davis at LynnDavis who gave me the gorgeous pewter connector some time ago. It was waiting for just the right project.
