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!
                               From Design Seeds
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!

Thank you for jumping in the challenge Miss Renetha! I love the beads you chose. Those grey faceted are perfect! I found it hard to find just the right shades this month. I like the simple elegance of your designs. Please come back on December 5th for the next inspiration! Enjoy the day. Erin

Renetha, these are gorgeous! I especially love how they look stacked up. The filigree adds so much texture to the swirled gray beads. Wonderful work & thank you for participating! I can't wait to see what Erin has in store for us next month!

Great Job on the 'same but different' vibe of the bracelets. I would wear them all stacked together and they would look awesome!
