October & November bead soup palette
Forgot to make a version in english of the November soup, which I threw together one day. As it was my birthday in the beginning of the month, I had already planned to include purple months earlier, but never thought about the rest of the bead mix. When looking for a good purple beads, the crystal sliperit rizos caught my eye. They have some purple in them, but also the coppery rose gold you might otherwise associate with apollo/capri gold. Just for fun, a colour that bridged the intensely coloured rizos and the crinkled pearl glass beads was added in the guise of sparkling ginger-lined amethyst AB triangles.
Ideally I would've wanted to use Swarovski's new blackberry pearls in the november palette, but I haven't got my hands on any yet. Thinking of making a tiny order of swarovski coin pearls for the birthday money I got from my aunt Elsa. Because you can't resist purple crystal pearls (nor coin pearls) even when on a bead ban...
October was another palette I just threw together, or rather made from a photo I took for another reason (namely Sequintastic September). You can read more about the components of this mix and see variations on it in the Sequintastic September reveal post.
