Pretty Palettes: June 2016 Reveal

This month's Pretty Palettes Challenge was gorgeous!

I fell head over heels in love with the ombre seed bead strands and had a blast making not one, but several projects!!!

Here is my first piece: 

This uses just the dark teal seed beads from one of the ombre strands (which were nice and bountiful) and a strand of something faceted and lovely that I picked up at a little bead store in Florida.

The focal is from Michaels eons ago and has been in my stash for years! But it matched the teal beads perfectly, so I added one of the cute little star fish beads and voila! Beachy!

I had one little faceted bead left and so I made it a focal for a full strand of ombre seed beads. The faceted beads have a lot of purple tint to them, so I used purple seed beads as a spacer and it looks lovely!

Lastly, I made this fun little memory wire bracelet and to shake it up, I added a cute little czech glass leaf that I had in my  

Had the best time with this challenge and can't wait to see what next month is!!!

  1. Such an array of loveliness! I love the faceted chunky beads you found. That color really does look like the swirling sea! And the addition of the purple and green is a lovely complement to that azure blue color. Thanks for playing along with me in the Pretty Palettes challenge! Check back at Halcraft on July 6th for our next challenge. Enjoy the day! Erin
