Pretty Palettes November Reveal

Here we are at the end of November and it is time for the Pretty Palettes Reveal.  This month the Halcraft design team requested fall photographs from readers of the Halcraft Facebook page.  The readers submitted photos and the team voted on their favorite.

Our contest winner is Susan Conaway with her photo of Lamb’s Ears and Maple Leaves. Susan is an accomplished fiber artist and we are thrilled to have her photo as our inspiration for Pretty Palettes November! The photo below was submitted to the contest and the color palette was then generated.


I decided to create a beginning beader design hoping to inspire you to create your own gifts this holiday season.  If you can form a simple knot, you can make these bracelets.


These bracelets were handcrafted using Bead Gallery® rose glass rondelles 4x6mm, glass rondelle lusters 4x6mm, glass round opaque brown 4mm and aqua glass small round 3mm beads.  The charm used are Charm Gallery® rose gold tone Celtic heart, arrow, heart and feather charms.

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

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.

For the month of July Erin Prais-Hintz has picked this beautiful inspirational photo from Unsplash of a starry night.  Here in Southern California, we do not see many stars.  It is amazing that without the lights of the city, this is what the nighttime sky looks like.

Pretty Palettes May Reveal

Pretty Palettes May Reveal

This month Erin Prais-Hintz is wanderlusting over all things Bohemian.  Boho is our inspiration for Pretty Palettes May. This style is my jewelry of choice to wear and create. So what is Bohemian?




Vibrant color scheme
Variety of patterns and textures
Eclectic pieces as focal points
Controlled clutter
Natural materials
Layers


Here are my Bead Gallery® choices for this month




Bead Gallery® multi small round bead mix
 Bead Gallery® multi glass and metal mix
Bead Gallery® crystal glass metal rhinestone rondelle
Bead Gallery® silver tone bead caps


What is so amazing about the bead mix above is that each bead is different.  You can create your own bead mix by saving all of your left over Bead Gallery® beads and create a one-of-a-kind necklace or bracelet.  






What do you think of the tassel?  I used a Recollections™ tassel and added the rhinestone rondelle and bead caps.
