Halcraft Pretty Palettes

In November of last year, Erin Prais-Hintz started a Pretty Palettes color challenge on the Halcraft blog.

Each month, Erin picks a set of beads that coordinate with a color palette and invites her readers to create something using those beads.  A few months ago, Erin started partnering with guest bloggers.  It's always fun to see how two people use the same set of beads.

I was honored when Erin asked me to be her partner for the August Pretty Palette challenge.  Erin has such a way with color and design.  She can find inspiration in virtually anything:  color, literature, music, and travel, just to name a few.

The inspiration for August comes from notion:creative, which showcases street art.

Erin picked a variety of beads

I'm so excited to play!

You are more than welcome to play along.  Erin offers a link up every month.

The beads are from Michaels:

99042 Bronze Iris 10x14mm rondel
95109 Teal Dyed Jasper 9x14mm
93286 Dyed agate pink round 10mm
59593 Round dyed pink quartzite 6mm
89899 Bone carved melon 8x10mm
93359 Dyed red bamboo coral 14mm beaded beads

Check back on August 27th for the reveal, both here and on the Halcraft blog.


  1. that's such a gorgeous colour palette

  2. How fun. Erin does have an eye for unique inspiration art and is a talented jewelry maker.

  3. Aw. You are my 'something good' today, Miss Tanya! I am excited to get to work on these beads but won't start until next week at the earliest (what? You know I am a procrastinator!). The colors are so mod yet fresh with a way to jolt my wardrobe for fall! I am delighted to have you as my Pretty Palettes Partner and would love for more to play along (always looking for more partners to share the fun with!). Enjoy the day! Erin
