My intention for this Margie and Me was to buckle down and create something awesome for both color palettes. Well, it didn't happen.
Let's just say the second palette (which I was actually more drawn to) ended up a failed venture.
I didn't like how the piece was turning out, so I just ended up junking it, but on the upside, I really like how my first project turned out!
This color palette was a true challenge for me, as I don't really work with pink, and I don't think I've ever used these colors in combination with each other.
I started with a round saffron hoop from Shannon over at MissFickleMedia and I chose some seed beads in light blue, teal, mustard, soft pink and white to go with the color palette.
The beading around the ring starts with brick stitch and then turns into peyote along the edges. It's not perfectly flat, but has a little arch to it that makes the white beads kind of flare towards the back.
The center bead is a bright and textured piece of vintage lucite from Reduction Nation.
I'm keeping this second palette as a reference and I fully intend to create something with the colors. It's definitely a palette that is very "me" and I have the perfect focal bead just waiting to become the center of an embroidered pendant.
