This challenge consists of picking one color family and a given color palette to make accessories for the blog. Here's the link to the challenge info: http://treasures-found.blogspot.com/p/take-challenge.html
For myself, I chose "pink". I'm not really a pink person, my favorite color is blue or teal, and most my bead collection I own are in hue of blues :D. So I picked Pink to challenge myself. I received an email with the palette challenge with my chosen color pink, and the theme to inspire the piece. I was smiling when I saw my theme :D

Perhaps Erin from Tesori Trovati Jewelry (organizer of this challenge) found out my hometown, and gave me this theme - Singapore Brights. In any case, as a proud native of Singapore this made me smile and I really want to do this challenge proud.
Alright without further ado, here's what I made :D
Sing Singapore! Roar Lion City!
I honestly had the hardest time thinking how I could represent Singapore in Pink! (T_T"). I stressed out a little until I found these awesome brass metal lion heads.... they look so cool and too fierce not to use. It became clear that I needed to celebrate Singapore's iconic symbol, the Merlion. The Merlion is a lion head attached to the tail of a fish and serves as the mascot for Singapore. Here's a picture of the majestic creature of Singapore!
Under the skyline, I thought I must use blue to highlight the city, and all the greenery my beautiful country has. Not forgetting my challenge color Pink, I decided to use pink sequins to add the shimmer and sparkle the city is famous for! With the theme palette Singapore brights, I've gathered the following beads for my piece -
