Welcome to the fun part: sharing what I created for this month's Pretty Palette challenge! Designing with these beads really was relaxing in a tactile, spa-like way. I love the silky smooth feel of the rosewood beads as well as the cool stone of the agate barrels. The mix of colors in the amazonite was a treat to my eyes.
