Radiant Orchid

So basically, I'm REALLY loving this year's color, Radiant Orchid. 

A few weeks ago, Nellie Thomas - the artist behind WoolyWire - created new these new color-ways with an Orchid theme. I was immediately captivated...

About the same time, Genea Crivello-Knable created these fabulous Space Age earrings using "Space Age Pod Pink" WoolyWire - which has similar orchid tones. 

The earrings are made with Genea's gorgeous lampwork headpins (btw, she created a tutorial for them that was published in the February 2014 issue of Bead Design Studio). 

Here is Cassandra Uhl of Zenned Out, modeling them - I love how perfectly they compliment her Orchid Pink hair! 

Another pair of earrings by Genea, with orchid tones in them: 

Here are a set of amulets by Jenny Davies-Reazor, based on a lovely palette of orchid and coordinating colors:

I did a little more surfing to find palettes and other examples of Radiant Orchid...

I hope you enjoyed this brief tour!
