Finally Friday 4/20/2012

Welcome to this week's Finally Friday reveal.

I have to let you guy's know that each palette is randomly selected. I don't search through my stash and find what beads I already have and then pick a palette. I open a Design Seeds email randomly and I choose one of the palettes from that email.
Okay now that I have said that I must tell you that this week's palette was hard for me to work with. I wavered between using all the colors and only using 1 or 2 of the colors.

To remind you here is last weeks palette:

indulgent tones
Design Seeds
Yikes, brown and gray and pink! Oh my.
I had a hard time wrapping my head around using all the colors so here is the set I made for this week:

I know it's hard to tell but those peanut seed beads are totally the same color as the first color in the palette and match the button perfectly!

Pendant from Marsha Neal Studio
Handmade button I bought at the Sheep and Wool Festival read more about it here

These earrings came about because of the wire wrapping my friend Cat was making the other day. I wore a similar pair to work the other day and they are looong and fabulous!

Here is next weeks palette from Design Seeds:
Oh how I love this one!

Shannon, your pieces are lovely! Those large beads on the necklace are gorgeous! I'm intrigued by the little beads on the earrings. Little touches like that are what makes a piece special.

I added my blog post in the linky thing but nothing shows up......

I can't wait to play along next week. The next palette is gorgeous--my favorite colors!

Hi Shannon,
Your necklace and earrings are beautiful. I really like the earrings and I may just have to try making a pair of these for myself. Next weeks palette is gorgeous.

First let me apologize for not participating this week. When I saw the palette had more pink in it, I knew I was done for. I really should pick up/create some more pink beads because I just don't have too many in my stash!

Anyway, your creation is beautiful. I especially like the design of your earrings. They're totally eye-catching!

Next week's palette is definitely more my speed! LOVE the aqua/turquoise dreaminess of it! Mmmmmm!

The earrings are very pretty and so well matched to the neck piece which is also pretty in peach and brown.

Love your necklace and the palettes! I can't wait to participate, but I will. : ) I'll probably have my studio unpacked by Memorial Day.
