This month's challenge is to create a jewelry design using the Pantone color of the year: Marsala. This color reminds me of merlot or cabernet sauvignon wines. Very rich. The most challenging part of this challenge was the weather. Everytime I wanted to go out and get beads, it was too cold, to wet, or to icy. So I went to my stash and found a few Marsala beads from Halcraft: I planned to make a wrap bracelet, but with school delays and closings, time just got away from me. However, I did manage to finish two designs. Bracelet made with 4mm and 10mm dark ruby red rounds and 2-hold sliders with rhinestones. This necklace was made with some leftover chain, Czech dark siam drops, and crystals. If I get the wrap bracelet finished, I will post it later. I would like to thank Halcraft and Erin Prais-Hintz for hosting the Pretty Pallettes challenges. They are a lot of fun. Here is a link to other participants: Marsala!
