March 2020 Pretty Palette Reveal

monthly Design Challenge with Molly Schaller

Welcome to the March 2020
Pretty Palette Reveal!

Deep blue and burgundy, light green, and pink come together for the March Pretty Palette bead kit featuring Bead Gallery® beads from the Halcraft Collection.

Our March Softly Spring Pretty Palette is inspired by the tender moodiness of early spring. 

Spring
BY GERARD MANLEY HOPKINS

Nothing is so beautiful as Spring –
When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
Thrush’s eggs look little low heavens, and thrush
Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring
The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him sing;
The glassy peartree leaves and blooms, they brush
The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush
With richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling.

This excerpt from Spring by Gerard Manley Hopkins is such a lovely and apt description of this season and this month's Softly Spring Pretty Palette. Right now, when so much is out of our control, it feels good to focus on the little things. Today, I'm sending love and hope from my bead table to yours. I hope you can find time to take a deep breath, find some small moments of calm, and make something beautiful. 

The projects I made were such a nice break from worry, and I found these colors comforting and their sparkle inspiring. To find a full set of step by step instructions to make your own set of Softly Spring jewelry, click on the individual images below.
