June 2021 Pretty Palette inspiration

monthly Design Challenge with Molly Schaller

June 2021 Pretty Palette Bead Kit with cream, turquoise, and blue beads

Welcome to the June 2021
Pretty Palette design challenge!

The June Pretty Palette is inspired by Iceland's Blue Lagoon, renowned for its therapeutic geothermal seawater. The lagoon's primary elements are silica, algae and minerals which give it its distinctive turquoise color. The beneficial powers of geothermal seawater were first discovered in the early 1980s when local residents began to bathe in the warm blue reservoir that had formed in the shadows of the Svartsengi geothermal power plant. Now, there's a world-class spa where you can reserve your own time to soak, dine, and receive spa treatments! 

We might not be able to fly to Iceland, but we can certainly bring this beautiful color palette to our bead tables and soak in our creativity! 

The stunning shield connector is filled with radiating cubic zirconia set into a 14-karat gold plated finding. Five beaded tassels, freshwater pearl teardrops and rice pears, semiprecious dolomite, and glowing Czech glass crystals in turquoise, royal, and powder blue glisten like shimmering water in the sun. Creamy howlite and wood beads balance out all that blue with earthy goodness. 

All of the individual beads and the full kit are 30% off during the month of June, but don't wait to get yours! Our Pretty Palette kits sell out fast!
