Teal, Coral and Gold...

These are my three favorite colors for the summer season coming up. Teal. Coral. Gold. I love the how the teal and coral manage to hint at pastel, and yet are bright and vivacious like the summer sun. And of course I love gold as a metallic accent. So you all know what jewelry colors I will be sporting over the summer.

Have you all checked out the Gold-Hearted Girl blog? Michelle is one of my favorite Cali bloggers. She is always posting such inspiring images, and gorgeous finds from across the net. Well now she has opened an Etsy store selling her jewelry creations, and whaddya know - a lot of her colors are my summer color must-haves!

Photobucket
Isn't it unique? I love finding jewelry that has character, and isn't everywhere. Michelle actually first started selling jewelry when she was a little sprout at 11 years old! Her mother always encouraged her to explore arts and crafts, and now Michelle's jewelry is available to us on Etsy.

Photobucket

Her inspiration comes from nature - from the trees, flowers, summers in Yosemite Valley... all the natural beauty in this world. So of course it's no surprise that most of her favorite hobbies involve the outdoors, like running, hiking, biking and kayaking. Secondly, she inspired by art. Viewing art, art history - Michelle is a self-confessed Musuem Junkie. And this lovely blogger also has the Travel Bug. Having been to China, Costa Rica and Canada, her next stop is studying abroad in Rome.

Michelle is giving one lucky reader one of her creations. The winner will have their choice between either an Indian Summer Bracelet in black or ivory, or a Little Turq Necklace. To enter, please leave a comment here telling me what your Summer colors will be, and which piece of jewelry you would like if you won. I will announce the winner next week.

Definitely the Turq necklace. I love the turquoise color and think it would look fabulous in all my pictures when I go to Europe this summer.

emcSquared said...

I would choose the indian summer bracelet in black! Love! In the summer I wear a lot of white, turqoise and pink. Anything white looks great with my summer tan.

Thank you!

My summer colors are turquoise, peach, and yellow -- would love to win the turquoise necklace! Absolutely lovely.

Regina said...

I would definitely pick the Indian Summer bracelet. I LOVE THOSE! So gorgeous and simple.

I haven't put much thought into this but for now I'll say that my summer colors are aqua, canary yellow, white and gold. I'm with you on the gold... I haven't always been a fan (hello 80's cheesy gold) but I'm loving it more and more. Hmm... I'm definitely going to have to put more thought into this and see what I come up with. :)

Lovely post.

I plan on living in crisp white shirts, cropped jean shorts, and sandals all summer, so I would absolutely love to have the Indian Summer bracelet as a cute, easy accessory. I think the coral one would look great with so many simple outfits so that would definitely be my first choice!

I'm having a hard time deciding between the Turq necklace and the coral amber necklace. They're both so adorable and pretty!

Hmmm...my summer colours are normally light blues and purples, with some fresh greens tossed it, and every once in awhile some orange, just to add some zest. :)

CM said...
