Happy Easter & Colour Palette Design reveal

Hello everybody! Happy Easter to all who celebrate today! May you have a blessed and joyous celebration!

Today is the reveal for Bonnie's Colour palette challenge - she presented us with 3 gorgeous palettes and we had to design something with one or more.

I had to participate and I had to choose this palette:

Look at those little birds! How can one not fall in love with them?! And the colours... absolutely delicious!

I had big dreams for the piece - unfortunately life happened (March was almost empty of jewelry making, due to way too many sick days in the household... and when sick days happen - work piles up... you got the drift).

But I did one part of it - with my newly found love, Kumihimo:

I know what the pendant will look like and I will finish it sometimes in the next couple of weeks (I want to wear it :) ). Until then - I keep this happy-looking spring-calling necklace part on my desk: it makes me happy!

Thank you, Bonnie, for organizing this fun event.

Thank you for visiting - and please remember to check what the others have chosen from Bonnie's palettes!

  1. Yes, indeed. I knew you would choose that colour palette. ANOTHER new found bead love? You are such a talented lady. I really like the kumihimo beading a lot.

  2. Forgot to say, thank you for participating.

  3. I just love how you picked up the colors in your kumihimo. I just love that type of braiding. So meditative but then I hate to finish them so I have quite a few sitting around that I just have to glue the ends on.

  4. Great job with the kumihimo.....the colours are great.

  5. Ooh I love this. Would go perfectly with my pendants. I mayhave to get my kumi disc out!

  6. I love the picture of those birds!

    I wonder if it was cold and that was what made them huddle together?

    Or is that just what those type of birds happen to do?


Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I appreciate and love to read your comments!
