|Classic Blue-Pantone Color of the Year|
January's inspiration for We're All Ears blog hop is the Pantone Color of the Year. This color is a timeless and enduring blue. It is Classic Blue and it is elegant. Blue gives us a sense of peace and tranquility. It is a very grounding color. Classic Blue is a neutral color in my mind. I cannot think of any other color that would NOT look good when paired with it. It reminds me of the color of blue jeans. I think of blue jeans as something that I can pair with any color.
There are a number of color palettes that Pantone has put together to use with Classic Blue. For a pair of earrings that I made, I selected the Exotic Tastes palette for my color inspiration.
This palette is an intriguing and adventurous potpourri of tastes and colors reflective of natural seasonings, condiments and blue foods. Foods that are a similar blue as PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue are rich in anthocyanins. Blueberries are a good example.
These blue moon earrings make a celestial statement with pops of white, orange, yellow. The colors were inspired by the Exotic Tastes palette. The blue moon was made by Brooke Bock. I added yellow, orange and white o beads that I purchased from My Elements. I think they create a whimsical look. The earrings have sterling silver ear wires.
