July 2019 Pretty Palette Reveal

monthly Design Challenge with Molly Schaller

Welcome to the July 2019
Pretty Palette reveal!

Drench yourself in the subtle sparkle of a twilight garden with druzy Bead Gallery® beads from the Halcraft Collection

I just walked inside after taking my own twilight stroll through my little garden. The echinacea and cleome flowers were blooming like crazy, and the milkweed plants I'd let grow wherever they'd like were being visited by butterflies. There's something so special about these wildflower patches.

This mix of greens, pinks, purples, and blue beads matched my evening walk tonight. Here's what I created with these gorgeous beads! First off, I used German wire to create a wrapped link Twilight Garden Necklace. The sky blue cloud agate pendant seemed to need a necklace with some length to accommodate its bold statement-piece look.

I wanted to focus on the light blue colored beads in the Twilight Garden Earrings, and I loved how the sparkling faceted glass teardrops looked in the warmth of a brass wire. 

Not wanting to leave out the Czech glass ovals or bead frames, I created the Twilight Garden Bracelet. It's easy and stretchy, and the twisted wire in the mala hand charm adds texture to this simple piece.
