Pretty Palettes Reveal March 2017

Pretty Palettes Reveal - March 2017



I really struggled with this months Pretty Palettes color challenge.  The inspiration for March is a beautiful photo of tulips from Molly Schaller's garden but the color palette generated from this photo reminded me of Thanksgiving.






Here are my Bead Gallery® bead choices for this months palette -
Red dyed bamboo coral chips Citrine semi-precious chip Tiger eye stone chips Dyed Howlite stone chips Orange dyed quartzite stone chips
I pushed myself to use colors I am not comfortable with and I absolutely love the outcome!






Did anyone else have a hard time designing with this color palette?  I'd love to hear your comments.  Be sure to follow me on Instagram  for more daily inspiration.

I'm super excited about this month's Pretty Palettes! Molly has picked a photo she took on a cruise and the palette that it generated is absolutely amazing.







This challenge corresponds with a trip I am taking to the Bahama's (I actually leave today).  I am hoping the beaches are as beautiful as this photo.


The Bead Gallery® beads I picked for my design are:


Natural mother of pearl 4mm rounds
Dyed howlite rondelle 4x6mm stones
Light blue 6mm shell
Aqua green quartzite round 6mm stones
Shell aqua luster rounds 7mm








I also created a matching bracelet set with Charm Gallery® charms that are beach themed.





My last project for this month is are these adorable dangle earrings.


I hope you enjoyed my designs and be sure to check back next month!
