Pretty Palettes May Reveal

Pretty Palettes May Reveal

Time for the "Pretty Palettes" reveal!  Erin Prais-Hintz color palette for the month of May was inspired by this beautiful Scandinavian fabric design with a fun mix of neutrals and a pop of reddish-orange. It is from a company called Almedahls that was produced originally in the 1950s.




I think my biggest challenge as a designer is mixing colors.  When I create a design for "Pretty Palettes" I am inspired by the the colors of the palette, not the actual photo.  Personally I do not look at photo and think "modern, romantic, etc" for me it is all about the color.  I know I can create any style of jewelry.  I would rather flex my color muscles. 

This was a challenging palette for me.  I have to admit, the first necklace I created made me cringe (and it is not pictured).  So I went to my bead stash grabbing black and orange hued beads with gold chain. 


Below is my design...


The necklace is modeled by the beautiful Samantha.  




I am actually happy with my second design which is pictured.  Anyone else have a hard time with this color palette?  Are you inspired by the photo, color palette or both? I would love to hear your comments.  Be sure to check out "Fashion Friday" and "DIY Saturday" on the Halcraft blog.  I feature two free beading designs every week.
