What's It To Hue? Tuesday

I've been very bad with beading lately!  But I just started working on my What's It To Hue? piece.  In case you didn't have a chance to take a look at the online brochure, here is the front side of the brochure:
And here is the inside with the palette:

I just love looking at this palette!  And I finally got started a little bit on it, inspired by a bracelet that I saw on Mandy's blog not too long ago.  I just love that picture of the Grand Canyon on the outside of the brochure.  In my youth, my grandparents lived in Sedona, AZ, and I was blessed to have several visits there.

And we were lucky to visit the Grand Canyon a few times and the images of true grandeur have always stayed with me! Are you working on a piece for What's It To Hue?  I will have a reveal next Tuesday!

I have also been working on another project that I am very excited about!  A dear friend of mine is modeling in a very special fashion show called Pink Rocks the Runway.  All the models are survivors who were diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 40.  I am working on a bracelet for Jean to wear with her couture gown!  Her designer wants a cuff that is sparkly with lots of crystals and so I began working on this Bellisima ring pattern:
I don't have the tension quite right on it so I will have to fiddle around with it a bit, but I'm planning on making 10 of them to stitch together for a cuff style bracelet.

  2. Those colours are just gorgeous! Very inspirational.

    Good luck with the bracelet. I'm sure it's going to look fab on her on the runway!
