Pretty Palettes September

Today is the reveal day for the Pretty Palettes Challenge for September.  Here is the palette:

September Palette

And here's what I came up with:

I added some purple glass beads and some freshwater pearls to the beads that Erin sent to me.  

This is a longer necklace that features a pendant from the Lipstick Ranch with secret message on the back.

My second necklace features the large off white pearls and I just happened to have 2 gray Humblebeads disk beads that I added to each side.

I used the pink glass beads with some pearls to make a wrap bracelet.

I even made earrings, which Is always harder for me to do because I never wear them.

Please check out the Halcraft blog to see what everyone else came up with.

Pretty Palettes September - ME!!!!

Every month, the Halcraft Blog has a color challenge hosted by Erin Prais-Hintz.  And each month she picks a person to play along.  This month she picked me.  Yea, for me, beads in the mail!!  One of the small pleasures in life, beads in the mail.  This is the palette that was picked for September.

Mmmm, yummy.  Makes me want cake.  Mmmm.  Anyway, these are the beads I received.

Purples and pinks and a little off white and silver.  This is a little preview of what I came up with.

Come back on September 24th to see the finished designs.  If you want to play along, check out the Halcraft blog for details.
