This was so much fun to build! I *never* make up bracelets in this way… but I’m delighted with the result!
For once, I wasn’t able to build a bracelet from the middle out. My objective today was to shake up not only the usual structure and layout of my bracelet designs, but even the approach that I usually take to building them.
In this case, there was no way around it, I simply had to start at one end, and work my way along. It took a bit of staring time… looking with a slightly unfocused eye, to find the beads that were a little too dark or too light in their position.
Beads shuffled up or down the line by a position or two, but basically, this was built from very dark to very light in a straight line. I expected the result to be somewhat conceptual – interesting, but not necessarily something I’d be dying to put on and wear. This bracelet surprised me, because it was a delight to wear! It didn’t matter how the bracelet turned on my wrist, there was always a visual treat.
It helped that every single one of these colours makes my heart sing… (I call them “Singapore Sling” colours..)
