Pretty Palettes: Halcraft/Michaels Stores January Challenge

It has been a while since Alison from Alison Adorns and I have done a Pretty Palettes Challenge. But she knows how much I LOVE snowflakes, so we both agreed to do it!

I loved the color scheme this time around, and I knew I had a bunch of fun beads that would work for this piece, so I ended up using a strand of AB finish rounds from the Challenge specs and added the majority of the other pretties from my stash.

I recently acquired the focal from a friend and I was really excited to use it on this necklace. Another thing that I like about my design is that I used jumprings for the snowflakes and they can come off of the piece to wear more seasonally.

This necklace probably won't be mine for long though. Don't tell my daughter but I am using it as an incentive for her to get her room clean and keep it that way as well as get a hairbrush through her almost natty dreads...

Can't wait for tomorrow, as the next Pretty Palettes Challenge will be announced! Join us!!!!!


  1. That is so pretty! I love the idea of making the snowflake beads removable so that you can get more wear out of it... adding those to tiny spring ring clasps would make it even easier! You will have to let us know how the bribing will go... I am concocting a bribery scheme right now for my own daughter who has no clue how to take care of her own room! I am working on the post for tomorrow's reveal for February... it is different than I thought it would be but I think it will be cool. Enjoy the day! Erin
