This month's Pretty Palette challenge was a bunch of fun, once again. Thanks, Erin, for hosting and choosing such a great set of colors to use. This palette was similar to something I might use, but the yellows and more grey-blues were slightly outside of my normal color comfort zone.
Here is the palette, inspired by Erin's niece's wedding:
And here is the set that I created!
The funny thing is that I made this set while sitting in a car during my son's soccer practice. This was my view:
|Needless to say, the boy got wet!|
I just grabbed a few of those cards of finding sets that have jumprings, clasps, crimps, headpins and eyepins, and some bead strands that I thought went with the palette, put them in my handy beading tray lined with a bead mat and my go-to tools: a pair of round nose pliers, chain nose pliers and wire cutters. By the time soccer practice was over, I had this great set!
|Green and turquoise gradient beads are beautiful together! (And notice that I used jumprings as spacers like in the Jazzy Jumprings post!)|
|These simple earrings use the same dangles as the necklace.|
Thanks for hosting, Halcraft and Erin! I look forward to next month's challenge! To see the rest of the designs, head to www.Halcraft.com/blog. There's more inspiration and some beautiful projects!
