Have you made any new year resolutions?

Let's reach some goals!

I love beginnings. Fresh starts feel amazing, especially after a year like this past one. 2020, begone! I am ready to start on a new journey with fun and excitement, and possibly fewer Zoom calls. :) My goal this year is to develop new skills and learn new techniques! 

This month's Pretty Palette is filled with opportunity for trying out some new skills and stretching your current skillset. If we keep on doing the same thing every day, we never get the chance to grow, so my challenge to all of my Pretty Paletteers is for you to try at least one new skill, technique, or material you've had your eyes on during this month's challenge. If you have any questions about a new technique, just let me know in the Beaded Jewelry Facebook group by commenting on the January 2021 Pretty Palette post, and I'll get you an answer! Let's dive into this beautiful new Pretty Palette!

The beads and components in this kit that I find most inspiring when it comes to learning new skills are brass patina rings, bead caps, and multi-hole spacers that provide a wealth of creative connection options. Semiprecious stone, glass, and shell beads are sprinkled throughout including gorgeous green faceted tiger eye, turquoise dyed howlite, dark blue imperial jasper, and hematine. Bumpy turquoise large-hole beads give you the option to use leather cording in your design!

All of these beads and the kit are 30% off.  
    *You can buy the entire collection with one click.
    *You can browse the collection and choose which you'd like to your home collection.
