Finally Friday Challenge.

If you remember I posted last Friday about a great challenge by Shannon of ForMySweetDaughter on Etsy and Blogger. Her challenge was to take a color palette she picked from Design Seeds and either make a piece of Jewelry or choose Beads in the color palette and post what you make/design/find.  I didn't have time to make any jewelry this week, but I did find some wonderful beads and such on Etsy that I'd love to use for this color palette.  Remember, this is the palette from Design Seeds:  Nested Tones
And following this are the great beads I found from various sellers on Etsy that I felt would fit this color palette.  First up is Natural Mother of Pearl Chips from Design Supplies 4 UNext is some great Blue Gray ceramic beads from MyGlitterStuff  After that we have some Twisted Cut Glass Bugle Beads from Cherry Blossom Surplus.  I love these little Light Gray Lampwork Spacer Beads from The Spacer Shop.  They really seem to fit the light gray in the palette.  And finally we have these wonderful Lt. Blue Robin Egg speckled Vintage Murano rounds for the Lt. Blue in the Pallete.  They're from TheBeadFeed.  So if you're looking for inspiration, check out this palette and all these great shops for your jewelry making needs.

The Palette for next Friday is Boating Tones. I love the colors in this palette, so I hope I have time to make something from it.  As usual it is from Design Seeds.  If you made something from this weeks Finally Friday Palette challenge, share your link.

Finally Friday Challenge

This sounded like so much fun. Shannon of For My Sweet Daughter on Etsy and Blogger set up this challenge for herself.  She loves Design Seeds palettes as much as I do.  They are a great inspiration for creativity.  So she decided to post a palette from Design Seeds each Friday and then allow herself one week to either create a great piece of Jewelry or choose Beads inspired by that palette.  She'll then post what she makes/finds in a pic and then post a new challenge.  Now I don't know if I can do this every Friday, but I'd like to try it at least twice a month.  So here goes:  Here's the first Finally Friday Challenge palette. 

 Want to play along?  Just comment and join in.
(If you decided to post a design palette from Design Seeds, be sure to give them credit in your post/picture of their palette.)

So let's play.  Post what you find next Friday.
