It's time for bonfires!

Snuggle up to a Pretty Palette bead kit that is as cozy as a night next to a campfire wrapped up in your favorite fall blanket.

How I've been loving this fall. September was gorgeous, and now the trees are at their peak color and are still holding onto their leaves. The sound of them fluttering in the cooler wind makes me want to build a campfire and roast marshmallows!

The October Pretty Palette is based on the colors of a smoldering fall bonfire after all the large flames have settled and light grey ashes cover the darker grey wood that glows pink and orange and radiates a soothing heat. This pastel version of Halloween colors is sophisticated and rich, and this month's beads are rich in texture and a variety of materials, as well. 

Indian horn tube beads are a deep dark grey, and the luster on the pyrite rounds reflects the light just slightly. Soft grey wood rondelles are polished to a supple shine, and Bali style silver plated beads glimmer. Black lip and pectin shells are sprinkled into the mix with pink and black speckled rhodonite lentils. Each one of these beads is a joy on its own, but combined they make a lovely kit.
