Inspiration Wednesday - Feathered Autumn

Feathered Autumn

Here is the Design-Seeds color palette I was working with this week. It was so inspirational I made 16 new pieces of jewelry this weekend! I am not going to show you all of them here because the page would take forever to load. I hope you enjoy this piece:

The porcelain pendant and silk are from from Marsha Neal Studio
The porcelain beads are from Gaea Cannaday
The Round disc on the side is from Nancy Schindler

I have wire wrapped each of the these handmade beads to the beautiful pedant 
I also wire wrapped a glass bead to the hook clasp

Here is the color palette for next week:

Make an item or choose materials inspired by the palette and write a blog post about it, post the item for sale, or post the item on your website. Add the link to your blog post, shop or website in the comments next week, to be featured as part of next weeks post please e-mail me at formysweetdaughter(at)me(dot)com before 6pm next Tuesday night.
The only rule is that if you use the Design-Seeds palette you must link directly to
Have fun and I can't wait to see what you make!



  1. I love the neclace you made. The earthy colors are what I love the most. The ribbon adds nice texture too.

  2. Shannon - that necklace is gorgeous!

  3. Here's mine! I finally got my act together enough to participate! This was fun!!!

  4. I love both of these palettes and could easily work with them - if I could squeak out a little time. Maybe today. Your necklace is lovely!

  5. Thanks so much! Jess I am thrilled you found time to make your monster!

  6. Nice necklace Shannon, as always!
    I love the new palette. I will try for something with those colors this week.
