Light-Hearted Blue

teal waves earrings 430x415 - Light-Hearted BlueThe primary reason for blue being such a favorite is its ability to sooth our spirits. Blue is the color of peace and contentment as well as reliability and security. Those are things we all need to feel on a regular basis. So designs that include blue will give off those kinds of feelings.

I thought this simple pair of earrings by Warren and Robbin of Bali did that in spades. The sky-blue background of the drop part has rippling lines much like you would see on a peaceful body of water and what is more peaceful than sitting by a rippling pool or pond filled with the reflection of a blue sky?

I find the white sections above interesting in that the wobbly circles are energetic but reserved on their steady canvas of white. That little tick up in energy contrasts the bottom half just enough to emphasize its peacefulness plus the circles feel like they are floating, maybe on water, bringing that peaceful water idea full circle.

Robbin and Warren don’t always work in polymer but their designs are always interesting to process. Find more of their work in both natural materials and polymer on their  Flickr photostream and on their website.

  1. Sage, I hope you had a suitable soundtrack preparing these lovley posts. Joni Mitchell’s Blue of course; It’s all over now baby blue etc. I am sure we could put one together. Thank Yu as always for extending and inspiring. Wx

    1. Actually it was the Cowboy Junkies’ rendition of “Blue Moon” …! lol. Funny you should bring that up. But I have soundtracks for a lot of things. My husband calls me a walking jukebox because I’ll start singing a song in the middle of conversations simply because I recognized a line just said. Can’t help it. Glad you enjoyed the week.
