Halcraft Pretty Palettes May Reveal

Yay! Another Pretty Palettes reveal! Here is the link to the original post from Erin Prais-Hintz and Halcraft. This month was right up my alley...
Here are the beads Erin chose from Bead Gallery beads from Michaels, AKA The Big Wall-O-Beads...

I was overwhelmed at the amount of boho-esque things I could make with ALL those beads! So I chose one strand and added one strand. I shared with Laurel, and then I got busy creating!

I knew I wanted to 1) add leather and 2) do some sort of tassel and 3) incorporate waxed linen, even before I stared. SO, when I found some art beads in my stash from 'robintheraven' the whole project just came together like a dream! ;-)

What fun these Challenges always are! Thanks so much Erin P-H for hosting these!

Stop back later to see the link for the blog hop! Or head to Halcraft's blog on their website and search for May Pretty Pallete Reveal.



  1. Very cool! I love how you used the wood wheel to be a toggle. So clever! Those art beads are perfect for a layered, easy boho style. Thanks so much for playing along, Miss Alison! Check back next week for the June Pretty Palettes inspiration! Enjoy the day. Erin

  2. Those word beads are such a perfect match for those beads. You definitely captured the bohemian spirit with your fun design!

    P.S. Aren't those aqua wood circles the best? Those were my favorites!

  3. Alison, I love what you've done with the beads! The addition of the art beads and that lime green makes this necklace stand out, and the way you attached the wooden "wheel" is fun and clever!

  4. I love that you chose one strand from the selection...the wood beads were just fantastic! and then made your own selections to create your final design. Such a great way to play along with your own twist. Everything is just so perfect about your piece from the colors and string selections to your choices of how to use the wood wheels and tassel beads to use. Beautiful and fun!
