Tickled Pink Reveal {Monday Moodboard}

Last week we started our new feature, Monday Moodboard, in which we hope to encourage you to get creative and use up your beadstash by drawing inspiration from the colours, shapes, textures and emotions of the moodboard.

We started with a soft and simple collection of pale pinks and mauves with a touch of green, grey and white.

Tickled Pink


Here's what the team made -

Sarah took colour inspiration directly from the palette by choosing beads in a pale pink colour with an iridescent finish that shows hints of mauves and purples. The sterling silver rounds also pick up on the shape of the round sweets in the moodboard and add interest and texture to these simple, but beautiful earrings.

To create these pretty earrings in circular netting, Liz chose white and pale pinks, combined with the tiniest hint of pale green which she spotted in the photograph of the roses - and this gives Liz's earrings the soft, light feel of the photographs in the moodboard.

Starburst Earrings

And, although I had something completely different in mind, I was drawn to these beautiful handmade shell beads that I bought several years ago in Namibia. The natural shell colours show variations of white, creams, pinks and purples and their round, but slightly irregular shapes are reminiscent of the rose petals on the cake.

There will be new Monday Moodboard next week but in the meantime, if you have thoughts about any of our new features or have any projects inspired by the moodboard to share with us, please leave a link in the comments below, send details to ottbs@hotmail.co.uk or post it in our new OTTBS Flickr Group.

Great job, everyone! I particularly like those star earrings.

I also like being inspired by colour and I hope I will be able to join in future challenges.
