November Pretty Palettes Challenge

I decided to play along in this month's Halcraft Pretty Palettes Challenge with Erin Prais-Hintz.  I love challenges.  The inspiration is from Design Seeds.  It's so rustic and colorful at the same time.  The challenge is to select beads (no, they don't necessarily don't have to be Halcraft beads) and create a jewelry design based on the palette.  Easy, right?

November inspiration is the perfect shade for fall: ORANGE!

To go with the palette, I chose red-dyed quartz (Halcraft), gray agates, and agates that have all the colors in the palette.

These beads are 14mm and a little heavy, so I went with making bracelets and earrings.

That was a lot of fun! Thank you for stopping by to see what I created for this challenge.  Have I said that I love challenges?  Well I do!
