Earlier today I shared my thoughts about trends with you.
Color trends are a wonderful way to celebrate the seasons!
An invigorating turquoise, PANTONE 16-4725 Scuba Blue conveys a sense of carefree playfulness. Even though a cool shade, the vibrancy of Scuba Blue adds a splash of excitement to the palette. Scuba Blue offers a feeling of escape as it is reminiscent of a tropical ocean. This stirring and energizing shade takes us off to an exotic paradise that is pleasant and inviting, even if only a fantasy.
Members of the EtsyChristmasinJuly Team have many Scuba Blue items in their shops! Here are a few!
At the end of this post is a big reveal!
As a child, surfing and scuba diving were a normal part of life.
I have many tones of blues and greens in my Etsy shop, but love this pendant because of the random nature of the glaze which reminds me of the wild colours of the sea and of course scuba blue!
Cotton wrap around sash…wonderful accent to any vintage wardrobe. This item wrapped its way through a decade or more of exciting and fun events adding a burst of color everywhere it went…hmmmm STUDIO 54!!!!
Cloud hopper – this is the other name of my Easter bunny. When you look at white clouds in the blue sky you can imagine this bunny hoping on them. So blue ears and hands really suits him although you won’t find so much blue color in my shop, because my favorite colors are green, brown, pastel colors.
For years I’ve made this Christmas stocking for my immediate family members. The most recently made one was for a new granddaughter. Hers incorporates pink, gray, and white. However, this one was made in colors relating to the beach – fitting because my shop is TheSandlapperShop! I love turquoise (Scuba Blue) and was happy to give a new look to the traditional crocheted Granny Square pattern.
This magical dreamcatcher has special powers! It not only looks fabulous by day, but at night it takes on an almost bio-luminescent glow! Hand woven in natural hemp, it has a glow flower encased in a clear glass cabochon in the center.It is accented with a turquoise and yellow feather that has a black and pink spotted guinea feather that glows hot pink under black or UV light!The second and subsequent pictures show how your necklace will look at a club under black light or a UV light. By absorbing ultraviolet light and other visible light, it can release the energy in the form of visible light for about an hour in the dark! This piece is reversible and can be worn with the glow flower showing or the intricate, enamel painted back showing. Closes with a nickel free lobster claw clasp. Necklace length is 24 inches .Total length from feather to top is 20 inches.Dreamcatcher is 3 x 3 inches round.
All the parts of this dream catcher have meaning.
To begin, the web represent the spider,our brother of life for ever repairing the eternal web of life.Thus weaving your life dreams and energy in the universe when you dream.
The ring represents the earth mother and the humble walk we do upon her.
The color blue represents Father Sky and all that lives in the sky; grandfather sun, grandmother moon, Star nation and Creation.The color yellow represents the direction of the East where the Yellow Nation is and we call upon their ancestors and the wisdom they carry to come in and teach us.It is also the direction of where the sun rises every day, therefore a new beginning. We put the Sacred Eagle in that direction and call upon the abilities to see far beyond what is in front of us and to focus on the task at hand.In the center is a yellow Sun which represents a new beginning each day!
Natives believe the night air is filled with good and bad dreams.The legend of the Dream Catcher is that it captures the bad Spirits and filters them.Protecting us from evil and letting through only the good dreams. It is believed that each carefully woven web will catch bad spirit dreams in the web and disappear by perishing with the first light of the morning sun.Wear it during the day and hang in above your bed before sleeping!
Blue like sea…
Blue like blue eyes of sea…
Blue like sea and flowers…
Like flowers from him.
Sea… blue sea… and He with flowers.
You gotta love Belugas! They’re cute, smart and great singers, and thus the nickname, sea canary! I added a background picture that I took, looking accross the bay, of the Olympic mouintains. I think it makes him look right at home in the scuba blue suroundings!
Unique, original necklace with turquoise enamel closed in geometric form topped with a cascade of silver swirls and chains. They look like wild, silver waterfall and complement with enamelled element.
A fantastic addition to the summer festival styling, ideal for your holidays by the sea!
The necklace was designed and made by me from scratch, using two very labor-intensive and precise techniques: wire-wrapping and enamelling. The materials are silver 925, 930 and 999 and two-components enamel based on epoxy resin in turquoise color. Silver heavily oxidized and polished, the frame around a rectangular piece rubbed. Under the enamel a sheet of hammered silver underlined by oxidation.
