Here is our inspiration piece and the palette I chose to work with, by Erin Fitzhugh Gregory:
|Isn't this gorgeous!?!|
I have been digging the often undervalued but very useful rounds lately, and this color palette really worked with the beads I had on hand. A few of the beads that I used have facets, but most are the smooth, round workhorses of the beading world.
Did anyone else struggle in this way with this palette?
Although it looks simple, it took me a surprisingly long time to design the Cowgirl Chic Necklace (hence my evening post)! I'm probably not alone in this, but although the techniques used to create this necklace are common, I find that choosing the beads for the almost-symmetrical look is challenging for me.
One special part of this necklace is the golden honey-colored beaded bead. I used Beadalon's WildFire cord to make this one.
Thanks for visiting my blog, and I hope you find the time to play along next month! Erin will be revealing next month's Pretty Palette on the Halcraft blog next Wednesday, November 5th!
