Earring a Day Challenge, Day 5!

Yesterday was a super-busy day, so I wasn't sure if I would get my earring in. I managed to find a couple hours before having dinner with friends to play with my seed beads. I decided to pull 5 colors at random again to see what I got. I pulled black, gray, brown, royal blue, and turquoise. Considering that I've been working with really bright colors lately, this was not looking good. I tried to think of things that I knew that had that color combination. What I eventually settled on channeling was the peahen.

While missing the grand plumage of the much photographed peacock, the peahen is just as majestic in her own right. After all, she is the one all that grandstanding is meant to impress.

These are colors I seldom use, but I love how these earrings turned out.
