Cayenne, a high pitched red, adds a dash of spicy heat to neutrals, and heightens the excitement when mixed with the other Spring 2014 colors.
Members of the EtsyChristmasinJuly Team have many Cayenne items in their shops! Here are a few!
CartoCreative has always loved Cayenne. She has always found it bold and exciting, much like Amsterdam, which is why she decided to use this hot and spicy color!
Kazaa from TangerineToes feels this fire truck bib fits into the Cayenne trend.
DesertDabbler earrings were inspired by nature exactly like the color Cayenne. There are many coyotes in southwest America where she lives and she loves to listen to them yip and howl at night – it sounds like they are having a party. Coyotes are a great symbol of the southwest which is why she uses them as her mascot. She found these red jasper coyotes at a rock show in Arizona. She added Swarovski crystals for a little bling and fun to the earrings.
Alicia from AliciasFindings shares that her mom made this Cayenne pendant in a class she took. Alicia decided to add a black cord necklace to complete the look.
Barbara from AuntBsAttic being married to a Romanian learned everything she needed to know about growing and cooking with Cayenne along with every other Hot pepper variety known to man! It was perfect training for later cooking for a son whose education, heart, feet and taste buds are firmly rooted in Asia and a large Mexican/Latino client base in northern Georgia. She loves the excitement and ‘sassiness’ of the color. She loves pairing it with neutrals for that special pop of color all year round.
Shannon from MullaneInk created this small mirror frame so that it will fit in so many spaces – she loves the pop of color Cayenne brings to it. A real statement piece for a small space!
Amy from BeadsandThreadsbyAmy created this apron for a local Chili and Frijole festival. She loved the colors and theme so much she placed it in her Etsy shop.
Veronica and Andy from AVAArtsSupplies wonders what could be better than Cayenne peppers in Cayenne? They got these as a joke. When they were first married she made curtains that had chili peppers on them. She never really liked them, but was too busy to make new ones. Her mom saw them and thought they were adorable and then started purchasing ANYTHING that she could find with Cayenne peppers – salt and pepper shakers, pot holders, magnets, plates, picture frames – so every holiday she received more Cayenne peppers to match the curtains she hated!
Linda from umeone created this bulletin board before she realized Cayenne was hot!
Lisa from InsomniacTreasures has been collecting random glass beads and decided to make a series of bracelets with focused color groupings. This vibrant combo of Cayenne red and bright blue focal beads provide a great pop of color to heat up a cold and dreary day.
B.K. Scriblz from ScriblzDesignStudio shares that winter and Christmas are two of her favorites. Her little snowman came about one day last winter. She lives in Seattle and they do not get snow very often so when they do it is a very big deal and everyone loves it! They had a beautiful snow the night below – the kind with big, soft, fluffy flakes. She looked out the window the next morning and saw the neighbor children playing in the snow, building a snowman. They were shrieking with laughter, their cheeks were rosy from the cold. One of the children had the most beautiful Cayenne red plaid scarf on. It was while watching them in their child-like state of pure joy that the inspiration for her little stacked snowman came to her. She made him that day, and listed him on Etsy where he is now one of her best sellers!
