30 Day Challenge: Day 27

This was so much fun to build!  I *never* make up bracelets in this way… but I’m delighted with the result!

IMG_9807For 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.

IMG_9809In 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.

IMG_9805Beads 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..)

  1. Funny, I quite often build a bracelet from one end to the other. And most of Trollbeads’ inspiration photos of bracelets seems to be taken from the end, and the bracelets are not usually symmetric. I’ve never fully got into the habit of building bracelets so that they are symmetric when seen as a circle. After all, when you’re wearing one, you can only see part of it, so the symmetry is lost anyway.

  2. Hi, this was an interesting approach!
    I might need a foxtail bracelet after all to benefit from the turning which I don´t with my bangles? 😉
    – and I adore your “Singapore sling” fantasy. Pinks and oranges play so well together in many shades! (+ yellow tones)…. and make MY heart sing 🙂 ❤

  3. I like this one. That’s the way I build my bracelets, from one end to the other, graduating if possible.
    Nice to ‘hear’ from Anne from Norway, has been a while. All the best to you.
    come around more often.
