Today I’ve opted to work with all my spicy, cinnamon and berry colours for a warm and rich composition…
I played with these colours earlier in the challenge, but in that case I added lots of soft pink as well, for a totally different effect. This time I barely touched on pink, with a punchy raspberry bead in the center, and only one Pink Desert. I’m pleased with the way that the raspberry unique armadillo contrasts with the claret tones of the
amber and other warm rusts. I finished this bracelet with two prisms… This is one of my favorite ways to frame a bracelet, as they are always perfectly matched for size and pattern. When the bracelet turns and shows the lock it’s so good for it to be nicely framed. In this case I used a retired Red-Pink Prism and a nice golden apricot coloured Pink Prism.
The rose gold sparkle in the depths of the Pink and Brown Desert beads is coppery and ties in nicely with the overall look of the bracelet. My Brown Desert has quite a reddish background as well, so it complements the design even more perfectly. My Scott Bouwens Unique in the background seems right at home in this bracelet as
well – it’s really been so useful over the past month! My bicone unique amber has a very golden feel to it, but its translucent glow does a good job of echoing the faceted claret amber on the opposite side. The three beads selected to go right in the middle of the bracelet – two ambers and the raspberry armadillo – set the mood for the whole composition.
I think this is one of my favorite bracelets from the month long challenge… perhaps a little cozy for Summer, but destined to be reassembled for September!
