Halloween in August

Leave a Comment
Yesterday I was out shopping and noticed that the Halloween decorations are in the stores already.  Yes, today is August 12.  Halloween is actually 80 days away.  I was surprised that the decorations were out so soon.  I guess that means that summer is winding down, and fall is quickly approaching.

Seeing all that orange color started me thinking about orange from a jewelry perspective.  Orange has never been a color that I have been comfortable with.  I do have a few articles of clothing that are orange, and it seems to be all the rage.  While clothes shopping recently there seemed to be much more orange choices, especially dark orange.

So even though orange is not one of my fans, Swarovski definitely is.  As soon as I saw these astral pink starfish, I knew that they would look fabulous with copper.  The large starfish is on a copper chain centered between three sizes of round beads.  The smaller starfish earrings are simply on copper fish hook ear wires for a very simple look.

I guess you could say that I cheated just a teeny tiny bit because these lovely starfish are bright orange with a touch of pink sparkle.  Here's my tribute to Halloween in August.  No pumpkins, just starfish.
