Rainbow Button Earrings

I'm having fun starting some of my new collaboration pieces, but I've also been working on restocking a few best sellers this month.

Editing RAW light box images in Lightroom has been a whole new challenge the past couple weeks. Some of my previously learned skills translate pretty well, others not so much. I'm pushing ahead regardless. Lightroom is still changing my entire photography world for the better, and no, I'm not being paid anything to say that.

Putting together photos of the beads and buttons that I used for the latest set of rainbow button earrings was kind of a little reward for this project. I love having best selling items, but sometimes I burn out making whole sets of very similar items.

I never get tired of these gray backgrounds.

Look at that whole group of pretty earrings ready to go. I'm hoping that if I keep plugging away at little sets like this, I won't get too overwhelmed during the holiday season. It just might happen, right?

I messed up experimented and made one set loaded with beads. They have close to three times the number of beads as the original design. In case you need a bigger explosion of color.

Next up on the best sellers: purple celestial earrings. And on that note...

I've been thinking about new color possibilities for future celestial bracelets and earrings. Black and gray/silver is the first one that's come to mind. Other thoughts? Other ideas? I always appreciate your input!

What have you been working on lately?


  1. I like the gray background, too, but those buttons just POP against the white! It makes them look a little like candy, which I mean as a compliment. Haha.

    I get really burned out on bestsellers, too, but then I feel bad about it because I'm lucky to have bestsellers in the first place. It's kind of a double-edged sword.

  2. Hmmm...I like those glow-y purple beads. Purple could also look good with silver.

    Those rainbow earrings are really fun! I am so tempted to get Lightroom...

  3. The bright colors really stand out with that gray background. I so need to work on my product photos. So many things to do, so little time!

  4. Celestial colors - Hmmm - don't want anything super bright and I don't know why I feel that. sunrises and sunsets usually have some dark reds and deep blues and dark orange - don't know how any of those might work or in what combination...

  5. The earrings that are loaded with beads turned out cute! I think it's a good idea to work a little bit ahead of time for the busy season later this year. I am doing the same thing. I'm with Natasha on the iridescent blue/purple and silver combination.

  6. Dear Rose, I like the last bracelet; though everything is pretty. I suppose I am in a more muted mood at the moment.
    Since you asked for suggestions I suppose black and silver is always pretty and is versatile to wear. Dark blue with gold/copper is pretty and is day or night wear. I suppose I am not much help with colors at the moment, but it is fun trying to think of some.
    Blessings dearest. Catherine xo

  7. Love those button earrings! And your celestial line is great, too. Maybe navy and soft gold?

  8. The beads and buttons look yummy :)
    The earrings are so pretty! When I read celestial I always think of silver, crystal and pure white?

  9. Love those first two photos...so great! And your rainbow designs are some of my favorites.
    I think black and silver would be great for a celestial design.

  10. These are gorgeous! I love your musical backing cards too :) I also totally love the name celestial bracelets. It's so evocative.

    Thanks for linking up with us!
