Halcraft Pretty Palette January

Happy New Year! It's been one year that I've been blogging my jewelry creations!
Check out Erin's post Pretty Palettes :: January Inspiration - Halcraft USA for this months color palette.
Laurel and I split some Bead Gallery beads from Michaels and dug into our own stashes and shared some good AB effect beads.
I had a snowflake bead left from last years Pretty Palettes challenge which was my first post on this blog! I used it to make a focal.
We all know how hard it is to capture the AB effect in pictures, but this one picture really turned out nice. The beads from Michaels Craft Stores are shown as well as some others. The Pink rounds are actually amazing vintage PLASTIC from Allegory Gallery. And the blue bicones are Swarovski that I picked up at a bead show.

This scarf necklace is actually an old piece that I made for Inspired by reading book club group. This group is hosted on the Internet and Facebook and is a group of us that love to read and create jewelry inspired by books. But, the theme fits this months Pretty Palette and the double hole shell beads were from Michaels Craft Stores!



  1. I love the idea of a scarf necklace! Living in snowy Colorado I could get a lot of wear out of your pretty example!

  2. Such a wide variety of pretties! I do think that scarf necklace is my favorite. It is really unique and I have never seen those beads before! Thanks for joining in the fun, Miss Alison! Check back on January 3rd for our next Pretty Palettes challenge. Enjoy the day. Erin

  3. Sooo pretty and the other is sooo inventive. Awesome work!
