monthly Design Challenge with Molly Schaller
Our February Pretty Palette is Inspired by Pantone's 2020 Color of the Year, Classic Blue!
The Classic Blue Hues Pretty Palette was so much fun to work with this month! So much beautiful, vibrant blue! This month, I made a convertible necklace that you can wear two different ways, stacking bracelets (one fixed length and 3 stretch bracelets that fit nearly all), and a pair of dramatic lapis teardrop earrings using wirework techniques.
To go to instructions to make your own, click the images below or the piece's name in the text!
Wear the Classic Blue Necklace with or without the pendant by adding or removing the pendant with the lobster clasp!
Learn a few wire wrapping techniques to make your own Classic Blue Earrings.
The Classic Blue Stacking bracelets are quick and easy. The Classic Blue dagger bracelet adds extra texture to your stack!
Thanks to this being a leap year, you get an extra day to order the entire Classic Blue Hues kit for 30% off, saving more than $25! Buy the entire collection in one click or pick and choose what you'd like to add to your bead stash to play along.
