monthly Design Challenge with Molly Schaller
Get the subtle sparkle of a twilight garden with druzy Bead Gallery® beads from the Halcraft Collection
Happy summer to everyone! I hope you're enjoying some warmer weather, lots of sun, and you've got a cool drink in hand while you do some beading!
The days are hot, but the evenings are relatively comfortable where I live here in Indiana--at least for the near future. One of my favorite things to do is to take a walk in my garden at twilight, when there's still enough light to see but all of the colors tend to become muted and faded. The bright flowers have a light mist of moisture on their petals, and everything feels cloaked in mystery and quiet.
My inspiration for the Twilight Garden collection started with the textured matte druzy rounds, and I worked from there, adding some acrylic sparkle along with iridescent quartz points and some fun Czech glass ovals with frosted triangles printed onto them. I'm very curious to see what people do with the silver frame beads. They're perfect for wrapping with wire, or stringing beads within. The two pendants in this collection couldn't be more different, one made with a flower petal coated in silver and the other a blue sky agate pendant with a golden frame. Both are dramatic in their own way and flow well with the rest of the beads.
Today through July 8th at 10 a.m. ET, you can get the entire July Pretty Palette for 40% off --only $38.95, and for the remainder of July you can get it for 30% off for only $45.44 delivered straight to your doorstep!
