october 2018 Pretty Palette inspiration

monthly Design Challenge with Molly Schaller

Welcome to the october 2018
Pretty Palettes Design Challenge!

Get inspired with a Pretty Palette of Bead Gallery® beads from the Halcraft Collection

Hello, October! Welcome to this month's Pretty Palette Challenge! It's a fun way to jumpstart your creativity, add some amazing beads to your collection, and share your projects with the rest of the beading community!

This month's Pretty Palette includes some of my favorites that are now back in stock! It was love at first sight for me with the painted agate stones. There are two in this collection. Both have a beautiful finish and texture that create amazing drama in any piece. The Costa Rican Rosewood adds a warmth to your designs, and the two shapes I chose are interesting in that one is a long, thin tube, and the other has two holes. I've been saving my beautiful golden tiger eye beads for the perfect fall project, and I realized that this is the time for them to shine. Sprinkled in are some gorgeous Czech fire-polished faceted rounds and one of our new Cave Painting Pendants
Here's how you can join the challenge:
