April 2017 Pretty Palette Beads Challenge

Pretty Palette beads is sponsored by Halcraft and their beads can be found in Michael stores Nationwide. They are calling this the Happy Spring and the inspiration behind it is Polymer clay Artist Heather Powers of Humblebeads. Heather creates polymer beads and has been doing so for decades.  I discovered Heather from Humblebeads about a 2 years go. She does art work and is also a published writer. This Artwork by heather is April's inspiration and these are the beads chosen by Halcraft:

Here is a photo of my beads as I had some strands already in my stash.

This is the Necklace I created: A brass butterfly I used Gilders paste on to add color

I loved the golden Amber hue of the shell teardrops.  I wanted to try something new for this challenge so I wirewrapped using Purple 20g Parawire.
Hope you enjoyed this whimsical piece.

Thank you so much for your visit. Come back and see what I do for May Challenges.

  1. Thanks for playing along, Gloria! I love how you added the guilder's paste to the butterfly for a perfect match to the palette. What do you think of this month's Pretty Palette?
