Pretty Palettes Challenge for March

Hi Crafty Friends,
This month I decided to participate in the Pretty Pallettes challenge on the Halcraft blog. Each month, they use a photo to inspire a selection of beads to use in a jewelry design. Here's the post for the March Inspiration.

I used three of the bead selection that is shown - the turquoise ceramic beads, the green AB rondelles and the copper-plated ovals and created a necklace and earrings.  I couldn't have asked for better colors and I love how the iridescent finish of the green beads matches the turquoise.  And, antique copper is one of my favorite metals to use in my designs.  I was very happy with this combination.

I can't wait to see what the other designers have created when the designs are revealed!  
Happy creating!

Update:  Here's the link to see the March Reveal!  Check out the beautiful creations!


  1. I love the way the dangles are repeated in the earrings. This is a great set that can be dressed up or down as the mood strikes. Thank you for joining in the Pretty Palettes challenge for March. Working on finding a great image for April! Come back on April 1st to find out what it is! Enjoy the day. Erin

  2. What a lovely set! I love the doubled up chain, it adds to the awesome wire wrap dangles you did! Great job!

  3. What a delightfully fun design. Full of movement. Great choices.
