We have a few holiday events to attend and I usually get a fun new cocktail dress that goes into a rotation with all the others. This year's is from Jeanologie in downtown East Lansing. I have really been into red this fall, which is a color I normally loathe, but I'm completely smitten with it right now! The dress has some interesting angles and a tiny bit of texture. It is a simple, fitted, strapless design and I wanted to make a bangle that would mimic the angles of the dress.
Below is the dress on my form in the basement (sorry for the unflattering picture):
I thought about putting some LEDs into this bracelet design, and I still might dabble with that and place an on-off switch on the interior of this bangle. BUT. I used a matte delica seed bead for this piece as the main black and they break very easily. I wouldn't try to force these beads to take any more thread and especially conductive thread.
Thanks Michelle! (at Jeanologie)
