Pretty Palettes - September Reveal

The September "Pretty Palettes" reveal is motivated by books, homework and showing school spirit. Our color palettes for this month is inspired by school colors.  I graduated from California State University Fullerton with a B.A. degree in Psychology.  But our school colors are blue and orange.  Ugh... So I decided to go with one of my favorite memories....

My little brother was the starting quarterback at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU) for 2 years .  It was an exciting time for our family - flying to games and watching him play on TV.  So this months palette is inspired by my brother Mike Moschetti.

 Here are some of my brothers statistics for you football "Buffs".  He transferred as a junior so he only played 2 years (most of the players listed played 4 years).

Here is my Bead Gallery® color palette

Bead Gallery® black glass large teardrop
Bead Gallery® black glass small teardrop
Bead Gallery® jet 8mm faceted rounds
Bead Gallery® black glass oval 5x3mm
Bead Gallery® gold luster hematite 6mm
Bead Gallery® black fabric tassel


I hope you enjoyed my design for this month.  For more daily inspiration please be sure to visit my instagram at Denise Yezbak Moore .

Pretty Palettes August Reveal

I can't believe it is the end of August and it is time for the Pretty Palettes Reveal.  This month, Erin Prais-Hintz has been inspired by summer fruit.  I love the blueberry hues...


My Bead Gallery® bead picks for this month have a crystal theme.

Bead Gallery® light blue glass rondelle 6x8mm
Bead Gallery® glass AB light blue 4x6mm rondelle
Bead Gallery® purple glass round 6mm
Bead Gallery® green glass faceted rondelle 4x6mm 

Long necklaces are all the trend right now so I decide to make a focal piece with chain for length.

I think the bright silver chain is the perfect pairing with the berry hues.  Would you like to make this necklace?  Please click the link below for your free instructions.
