Finally Friday

It's Finally Friday time!

Here is the palette for this week:





Gotta love Design Seeds, these colors are so beautiful. I will admit I struggled with this palette, I almost never create in these colors and I don't think I have ever created with all of them at the same time.

Till now :-)

Here is the necklace I created for this week:


It all started with these Czech glass flowers and my fused copper rings


Repeated 3 times


Then I added this beautiful lampwork glass bead Pinkbeach from and spacers from TierraCast 


Then this porcelain pendant from Nancy Schindler and layered with a vintaj butterfly



I threw in some teardrop glass beads, vintage lucite beads and my own forged copper clasp

Here's the palette for next week:


The rules:
Look at color palette.
Be inspired.
Gather supplies inspired by that color palette.
Create something wonderful.
Anything, jewelry, clothes, a painting, even a big 'ole mess.
Take a picture.
Post on your blog.
Link palette to Design Seeds.
Add link here in comments.
Play again the following week!

So did you make anything inspired by this weeks palette? Be sure to add your link below.

PS I forgot to say I love your necklace! I love how completely different it is from anything I made, yet contains the same colours, and even came from the same inspiration board! This is a brilliant challenge.

What a darling piece! I love the sweet colors and those peanut beads!

I'm playing along today as well:

Beautiful necklace, Shannon - it's perfect for summer, if you ask me! You've really gotten asymmetrical design down, and this is just a great combination of components.

This is one of my fave colorways right now, and I wish I'd remembered to play along :) Ah well, next time!

It hit me THIS morning that I hadn't worked on this palette as I had planned. . .well, I turned that one around real fast! Here's the link to what I created: http://craftyhope.blogspot.com/2012/06/finally-friday-and-some-links.html

Now, your piece just SINGS! The copper worked out perfectly with those bright shades. Better than I would have imagines. You've got a great eye! And I love those faceted beads you have in that coral-y color. They're perfect! Nice job!

Next week's palette is so very Zen. Hmmmm, I wonder how hard it'll be!
