Summer challenge

I never participated in a beading challenge before, so I was thrilled when Odin invited me to take part of one with her, JRPDesigns and Ruby Lockwood! The challenge consists in creating something using one of the two summer color palettes below:

These were the two most voted palettes. Both of them represent a big challenge to me because I never thought of using these colors together, especially to create a summer piece. My first choice was the second palette, but I don't have the beads I need in these colors. So I had to pick up the first palette.

Here are the beads I chose:

To match the dark blue, I'm going to use one (or all) of these beads:

The ones below correspond to the second blue (not sure if they truly match the blue in the picture, but they're the closest I could get):

The third color:

And the greens. Besides the chips, I'm still not sure which of the green beads I'm going to use.

I'm very excited to see what I can do with these beads. In a month I'll show you the result.

Meanwhile, check what beads the other participants chose:

Odin's Musings
Ruby Lockwood: she didn't choose yet, so I put the link for her channel.


  1. Love the colors! Such a gorgeous combination! Super excited to collaborate and I can't wait to see what you come up with!

    Happy beading!
