February 2022 Pretty Palette reveal

monthly Design Challenge with Molly Schaller

February 2022 Pretty Palette Bead Kit with white, blue, pink, yellow, and turquoise beads

Welcome to the February Pretty Palette Reveal! What did you think about Pantone's color of the year, Very Peri, as you incorporated it into your own bead collection? I think it actually did bring "a carefree confidence and a daring curiosity" to my creative spirit, just as Pantone described. 

The first piece I made with the February Very Peri bead kit uses the silver plated sliders, Preciosa crystals in tanzanite, and gorgeous hematite rectangles mixed with Bali style silver plated beads. I used eyepins as slider components between each of the actual sliders, and the whole thing is strung on Beadalon's Elasticity cord, so it stretches to fit most wrists.

My next project was inspired by the fun, lightweight silver-plated ball chain. To make a bold centerpiece, I just opened the center link of that chain and added the lapis pendant. The bead cones help the eye flow toward the single strand of silver and Czech glass fire-polished rounds. This necklace looks like it took ages to make, but it comes together quickly and is the perfect necklace to help beginning beaders experiment with different types of connections.

My longing for spring inspired the Very Peri Earrings with their filigree flowers and petal-shaped blue faceted glass drops. By using the silver loops from the silver-plated metal and acrylic mix as a frame, I created wire-wrapped drops to dangle below the flowers and the Very Peri crystals.
