Halcraft Pretty Palette June Reveal

 This month Erin from Halcraft picked The Beach as a general color palette for June's Pretty Palette.
Here are the beads she choose this month. They are very beach themed and ocean colored.
Here are the beads I choose from Bead Gallery. I picked two strands from Erins choices and split them with Laurel to play along. I then picked those adorable turtle tiles and multi metal spacers to go along with my half of the Challenge beads.

Well, I really had fun with this one! I love the color way and I love mixing metals! I had grand ideas of MULTI strand seed beads at the bottom, but I have the attention span of a two year old, so I made two and moved on! I had some leather and stringing wire in the perfect colors! The little shell button made the best closure, but I didn't need one because it is long enough to go over my head, so I used it as decoration.

 I've been hoarding those turquoise sequins from Bead Gallery for a while and this seemed the perfect time to use them. It adds to the beachy vibe, and the necklace makes me think of Hawaiian Islands!

Happy Blog Hopping! Check out Halcraft Pretty Palette Challenge and see what everyone made for The Beach themed challenge!


  1. Those turtle beads are fabulous! I have not seen those. I love the mix of textures in this piece. A fun necklace that hints at laid back days at the beach! Thanks for joining in the fun! Enjoy the day. Erin

  2. I really like the addition of the sequins in your necklace. Sequins never get enough attention in the bead world!
