What a beautiful month June has been! Not too hot, with showers to keep the grass green and sunshine to keep me happy. I have absolutely loved this month–and the Pretty Palette I’ve been dreaming about.
Here is the June 2017 Pretty Palette inspiration image:
And here are the Bead Gallery® beads I chose to use with the palette:
If this is your first time visiting during the Pretty Palette reveal, let me share the rules. All you need to do to participate is make a piece of jewelry…
Here are links to the Bead Gallery beads used in the image:
I must admit that there are times when it pays to be the author of the Pretty Palette post and have the opportunity to pick the beads and colors. This palette is totally within my comfort zone! I love the warm browns and the pops of coral, turquoise, & white. When I sat down to make a piece, this necklace came together almost without effort.
What I especially love about The Best Day Necklace is that it is a multi-strand necklace but that it lays on the neck and chest in a less than systematic, organized way. I like that the strands overlap and play well together without sitting in concentric lines. It makes the design a bit more fun and organic. The chunky nature of the ovals are perfect to place at the center of the necklace.
Thanks for visiting to see what I made for this month’s Pretty Palette challenge. Now it’s time to show off your beading chops! You know the drill, just leave a link to your blog post, Instagram post, or other image showing your Pretty Palette piece! We love to celebrate YOU!
What a perfect summer necklace! Brown is the color I probably use least (read: never) in my designs, but I really love the agate ovals and how you used them. This whole piece looks flirty and screams summer fun!
What I like most about your necklace is those little pops of red between the agate beads- that was a brilliant decision! It really is so beautiful! I love little details like that!
This was such a fun challenge – the colors right inside my wheelhouse as well. Bravo!
