The Erin Prais Hintz Challenge of Color Blog Hop

Today is the second Challenge of Color Blog Hop, Erin Prais Hintz has organized it...The color I chose was teal, so I was very suprised to find that my color pallet was such a muted suttle one....It was created by Jessica Colaluca of Design seeds,    http://www.designseeds.com/  and chosen for me by Erin , I have to admit, it wasn't a color grouping I would have chosen for my self, but it does work quite well, and the funny thing was I had all these colors in my stash of beads......In fact the two larger beads on each side of my druzy focal have every color in my pallet, I'm not sure what they are but they are quite beautiful!
I chose to make a necklace, with a druzy focal, the two perfect stone beads on each side,  some stick pearls in a pale peachy shade some pale teal fire polish
beads, and some faux chocolate pearls.......you can access the list of participants by going to Erins blog at........http://treasures-found.blogspot.com
I want to thank Erin for hosting such a fun blog hop!!!

  1. Oh my, what a YUMMY looking palette. I would have had to eat a couple donuts a day if I would have been given that one!

    You managed to get all your colors in there using an interesting variety of beading materials! Well done!
