Pretty Palettes ~ January '16

I was thrilled with this month's
Pretty Palettes Challenge.

Very Serendipity because...
I had been Pinning Snowflake photos
on Pinterest.

Snowflake In Sunlight!:  Snowflake under an electron microscope. #nature:

And I have a good stash of Crystals.
Some halcraft and some from other sources.
A perfect time to use them in this challenge.
6mm Sterling Silver Plated Stardust Round Bead
Bead Gallery - 10428913
The Sliders with AB Crystals were a gift.
 I do believe they are from Bliss found at JoAnn's.
Unfortunately I have since thrown away the tag.
The Snow flake Pendant is from Jolee's
also a gift.
The Links are from Melissa Francis.
Lantern chain and cord ends also a gift
 but you can find those on Fire Mountain.

I wanted to use the Snowflake crystals but
the one seemed too big and the other too small.
But in my mind's eye I can see liking them better
 than the Jolee's Pendant.
Who Knows I still may change it.

Hi Terri...Normally, I'm not one for crystal pieces unless making one for a friend or client. However, your delightful and delicate pieces are talking to me. Nice way to pull a variety of beads together and make a statement piece that doesn't shout "statement" or look like it weighs a ton. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Wow Jackie..what a nice compliment...Thank You!

I really like how you used the sliders! Sort of a focal and yet a bail for the focal at the same time! Bravo!

Thanks so much Alison!

This is beautiful and frosty and so delicately feminine. Lovely! The Bliss Beads are also a Halcraft brand (and there is some at Hancock fabric as well, but I can't recall the name). So great to have you join in the fun (great minds think alike!). Look for the next challenge on January 3rd!) Enjoy the day. Erin
