This month's inspiration for 'We're All Ears' comes from the Panetone Spring Colours for 2015. When viewed together the mute colours all seem a bit bland but they do evoke a sort of earthy naturalness that I tend to lean towards. So going with grey and pink, for the first of my offerings this month I have constructed a design from beach pebbles. I tube riveted them (from a tutorial by Stonz) and lashed them (I think this is a barrel knot?) to copper tone leather cord using a dusty pink macrame thread. I need a bit more practice with the tube riveting but I like how the frayed ends of the thread provide a soft contrast to the pebbles.

My second pair are just a bit of fun, repurposing a previous design. I removed the beads and using the textured silver part of the dangles I threaded through the holes and there's those frayed ends again! If I'd had more time I would have oxidised them to make them more grey and less shiny to go with the grey and pink theme but this reveal has come round too quickly this month!!
