February 2019 Pretty Palette inspiration

monthly Design Challenge with Molly Schaller

Welcome to the February 2019
Pretty Palettes Design Challenge!

Get inspired with a tropical palette of Bead Gallery® beads from the Halcraft Collection

Hello, everyone! This week has been exceptionally cold, with temperatures well below freezing most days. I'm SO tired of the snow and ice, so I decided to pump up the tropical hues in this month's Tahitian Twist Pretty Palette!
From warm rosewood to the sumptuous swirls of malachite, and opalescent orange Czech glass, this Pretty Palette definitely turned up the heat and is as vibrant as my grandmother's favorite cabana swimsuit. She used to wear it with the most fabulous plastic-flower covered bathing cap you've ever seen! Another favorite of mine is the gorgeously matte dyed fire agate crackle rounds. Their subtle texture perfectly contrasts with the slick, shiny red bamboo barrels.

One of our best selling items is also included this month: four strands of real amazonite rounds in our multipacks. If only every decision was as easy as buying four strands of amazonite in 4mm, 6mm, 8mm, & 10mm round sizes for only $6!
