Today is the reveal day for the June Pretty Palette challenge. This month Molly put together a palette with some great colors with geometric and Southwestern influences. I love this color selection; it's got turquoise, a pinkish red, a chocolate brown and a couple of neutrals. I can live with that! In fact, it's a staple of my wardrobe, especially in the summer.
And, the photo has additional inspiration:
I love the geometry of Southwestern patterns, so I'll try to capture a bit of that in my design.
Here are some of the Halcraft beads I used. Some are from Michaels Bead Gallery line and some came from JoAnn's and their Bliss Beads line.
I wrapped and tied some red twine around the turquoise cross and added a bone feather for the focal. It's not a large focal, so I didn't want to overpower it with a lot of beads. So, I decided to space out the beads on chain for a lighter look. I left the chain long with no clasp. Maybe later I'll add a bracelet because I love these beads and the color combination. And, I'm ready for the Fourth of July barbeque!
Thanks, everyone, for stopping by my blog. Take a look at the other designs inspired by this color and design inspiration here. There are some fantastic designs there.
