Pretty Palettes Challenge

Every month, Erin Prais-Hinz posts a color palette for Halcraft.   Just so you know, you can find the beads at Micheals Craft stores.   Erin always has a great blog about the color palette of the month and everyone is invited to play along, creating something with beads from that palette. This month, the January Pretty Palettes Challenge was to be in colors that matched Pantone’s color of the year, Marsala.    This was her photo.


I’ve always got some beads around from Micheals and just happened to have some dusty pink and some wine colored ones.  I also had an old fashioned bonnet focal and some little tea party charms that I had been wanting to use some way, some how.  So I got out some alcohol inks, colored the bonnet focal, put some tiny  garnet beads with the pink and wine beads, made a bit of beaded chain with the garnets and wire  This is what I came up with.

I know, Erin, I probably should have taken a photo of the beads from Micheals before I used them.     I did, however, keep the SKU numbers for two of the bead strands. YAY for me!
