Pretty Palette -January Inspiration Pantone Color of the Year Marsala 18-1438

January Pretty Palette Inspiration is inspired by the color Marsala which is Pantone color of the year.When Pantone announced this color to be the color of the year I was like'' What '' but the more I did research on Pinterest the more I like the color .I find the color to be sophisticated ,fun ,with a touch of retro depending on how you choose a color compliment it.I must confess that I don't own anything in this shade but I did find a nail polish in that shade  and it belongs to my daughter . I just remembered I have some Christmas decoration in the color  because I don't like decorations in the color red. Well then I cant say that I don't have anything in that shade. I was just thinking that  a velvet jacket would look great in that shade or velvet skinny jeans and adorned with the jewelry I made with Erin Prais -Hintz January Pretty Palette Halcraft USA.

  2. Nice collection! I like how you used the silver buttons as a connectors. It's difficult to choose a favorite. I like the druzy necklace with the chain, I didn't care for the beads when I saw them in the store but you used them nicely.

    1. Thank you Louise I have been saving the buttons for a while and everyday I opened the box that I had them in but no idea on what to do with them until I but them next to the beads.

  3. Wow! You certainly did get inspired! I love those buttons. The texture on them and the patina. You used them is such a wide variety of designs. I love the Cherry Bomb necklace with the feather the best. Thanks for playing along with me in the Pretty Palettes challenge! Enjoy the day. Erin

    1. Thank Erin I practically used every bead that I bought .Once I start beading I tend to use everything non stop .I must confess that the cherry bomb was supposed to be a rosary but I was short by 2 beads .I have a great time playing along in the challenge.

    1. Thank you Michelle I still have more buttons left for future designs and the necklace has become my favorite simple even though it gave my fingers a workout with all the wire wrapping.

    1. Thank Christie, I was given 3 large boxes of very expensive buttons in total about 200 buttons and when I saw them I was in heaven. The Cherrie bomb was going to be a rosary but because of 2 beads it never happened.

  7. Elsie, these are wonderful! I's amazing what you can make with a few strands of beads--and some buttons, of course; they're gorgeous, too! I can totally see myself wearing the button and feather necklace. That extra swirl of wire on the bead above the button is dreamy. Thank you for playing along!
