One of the trends I love around the holidays is non-traditional color schemes. I am not talking about black  and neon green Christmas. I am talking about taking the traditional reds and greens into pastels and adding turquoise and lavender…..I love those non-traditional yet festive color combos.

I created this set of earrings and headband using Prima Bead's ‘Tis the Season Collection of beads. Aren't they fun?

This earrings and headband set is for my niece who fancies herself a “pretty little holiday princess”. I love the mini jingle bell dangles!

I simply threaded the pre-wrapped beads onto a wire and threaded that through the center of the flower headband. And for the earrings, I added the dangles to the ear wire using a jump ring – so simple and fast!
