All About the Ombre!

Ombre is back big time this season!
Ok, so you've never heard that term huh? No problem, I'm here to let you know what it is.
Simply put, ombre is when colors fade into each other.
It can be white fading into darker purples (look at my earrings here as an example) or one color fading into another--think of a sunset. Blues fading into oranges into reds. That is ombre.
This season, it's everywhere!
From jewelry, to scarves and sweaters, to jeans and skirts....lots of color and creativity to be found.
I was inspired by this to create a treasury of ombre jewelry and maybe it will inspire your creative visions as well: http://www.etsy.com/treasury_list.php?room_id=120847
If you get the chance, take a peek before it expires and if you miss it, you can search the terms 'ombre' and 'fading' into Etsy and see the wonderful pieces that come up.
Have a great day!
Until next time...
