June 2019 Pretty Palette inspiration

monthly Design Challenge with Molly Schaller

Welcome to the June 2019
Pretty Palette design challenge!

Get "buzzy" with Bead Gallery® beads from the Halcraft Collection

Good morning, Pretty Palette people! If you're like me, your summer is nearly as busy as the rest of your year, if not more! So, let's get "buzzy" and have some fun with beads! June's vibrant palette includes a nice balance of elements--earthy neutrals, watery blues, and airy white and clear beads--and a handful of just-for-fun bees and tassels!

21 items are included in this summery set (and you can get it all for $47.43 delivered to your doorstep!), and although I think the ceramic bee beads are about the cutest thing EVER, I'm crushing on the Czech crystal glass melon beads with gold luster. These beauties aren't brightly colored, but they've got that special something, and I can't wait to find just the right way to highlight them at my beading table this month.

The other exciting aspect of this palette is the sweet selection of 800 3mm Czech fire-polished glass faceted rounds! The fact that they're all the same size and shape makes them perfect for a bead weaving project. Do I have any bead weavers out there?

If you're a newbie to my monthly challenge, read on to learn how you can play along! All you need is the beads and some creativity!

Here's how you can join the challenge:

1. Read about the Pretty Palette challenge right here. 
 3. Bead with your current collection while your Pretty Palette beads make their way to you as quickly as possible. Halcraft Collection's shipping can't be beat--and it's FREE to the U.S. with every order over $40! 
 4. Once you have the beads in hand, create something that is YOU! Feel free to add beads from your stash that flow with the provided palette or use only a portion of the beads chosen here. The key is to have fun and use your creativity! 
5. Share an image of your creation on the last Wednesday of the month or later--we want everyone to be able to play along--in our Beaded Jewelry Facebook group or tag Halcraft Collection with #PrettyPalettes or #halcraftprettypalettes and follow us on Instagram
