Halcraft Pretty Palettes: February Reveal

Welcome to my reveal for Halcraft's Pretty Palettes Challenge.

For more information visit http://www.halcraft.com/design/pretty-palettes-february-inspiration-3/

This month Erin's inspiration was Lace, bobbins, and Valentines.

Here's a picture of bobbins used for lace making.

I picked the Rose Quartz pendant and the Rose ceramic beads for Laurel and I to split. Why? you ask. Well I don't like flowery things and lacy things and Laurel doesn't like pendants and pink, so I picked these to be a Big Challenge for both of us!

I chose to use the bobbins as inspiration and make a lariat necklace. Here it is with lace that I used as a loop for the pendant.

Here it is without the lace and using more Rose Quartz as the loop for the pendant.


Please check out the Halcraft Blog to see what Erin Prais-Hintz and her Pretty Palette partner this month Michelle of Firefly Design Studio made. ALSO, check out the inlinks at the bottom for others who played along this month.



  1. Such a clever way to make the loop for the lariat! I love the deeper and richer pinks when paired with the soft, nearly white of the pendant. I really do love that pendant even though I am not a big fan of pink! I thank you and Laurel for joining me again on the Pretty Palettes design challenge! Enjoy the day. Erin

  2. I agree with Erin--so clever of you to make different options for the lariat loop! I really like the addition of those darker pinks, too. I wish I'd thought of using those. :)

  3. What a lovely necklace! I love the different shades of pink that you used, and I'm drooling over those stick pearls. For some reason, I have difficult designing lariats--and you make it look so easy! I'm very impressed. Lovely work! :)

  4. I love the lariat-style of necklace! These colors are so beautiful together, and I love how you still incorporated bits of the lace in the second version with the beaded loop. So creative! Gorgeous design and beas selection!

  5. Beautiful necklace! I also like the darker pinks that you used; very sophisticated.
