Every month on the Halcraft Blog they have an inspiration collection of beads called "Pretty Palettes". The Pretty Palette is shared early in the month, and then they have a reveal of what they have created near the end of the month. They extend the invitation to play along to anyone who would like to join in. I finally managed (barely) to play along in time to share my link!!
Here is the inspiration image I decided to go with.
It is from Pottery Barn Teen - PBTeen painted canvas surfboard prints. I looooved the middle one and that is where I drew my inspiration from.
Here are the Bead Gallery Halcraft Beads I decided really spoke to me.
And this is the necklace I made using these fabulously fun beads. I love copper with turquoise and felt this chunky chain really helped pull the entire look together!
This necklace is just long enough to slip over my head without needing a closure, making it a perfect fit for all my cute summer tank top necklines. I am wearing it even now as I type and loooooving the super hot summer look!
