Monday Muse & Beady Link Party

Happy Monday Everybody! So I have a color crush and it's been bad lately. Inspired by the desert blooms of cactus and succulents all I want to dusty sage greens, faded turquoise, peach, melon and dull shades of pink. Yep, that's my muses' current happy place.

Inspiration palette from Design Seeds - Cacti Color 9

First up, i'll share my take on the color inpsiration with this new Oblong Cactus Pendant that I created this weekend. You can see more on this theme in my Etsy shop.

Outwest captured all those dreamy desert hues in this mixed set of spacer and disk beads. What a fun collection of beads for earrings!

I love the rustic quality of these polymer clay beads by BeatnHeart, aptly named Sedona.

Enamel headpins by Shimmer Beads Design capture the shades of succulent plants. 

Can't have a Southwest theme without a feather, can we? I like this earthy one from SuzieQBeads.

I just discovered Wildlands Artisty and you really need to stop over and see the ceramic pendants and tiny animals. They are all sold as finished jewelry with chains or cords, but you could easily add them to a jewelry design of your own. I'm smitten with this Indian Paintbrush Pendant

These, just these. Let's file these amazing charms under NEEDZ from the amazing Scorched Earth.

NaOsGlass created these lampwork beads that fit my theme perfectly, the colors look like there were taken right from the inspiration piece. And silvered lampwork glass, always a fav of mine!
