I have been completely enamoured with all of the chevron pattern that has been emerging in the fashion scene this spring/summer. Mostly I'm picking it up on Pinterest, which may be my latest social media addiction. (I know, I'm behind, but they needed a good phone app. Twitter, I still love you most).
I needed a simple change of pace to get back into beading bangles (I haven't made a bangle-style in a while!) So I drew up a simple pattern and started in on this bangle on my way up north over the past weekend.
The bangle is a little wider than I had anticipated, and took longer than I thought it would, despite being just 2 colors. Oh well. A friend pointed out that there are a lot of beads in that. I figured 3,840 seed beads to be exact. This bangle is 2 inches wide from point to point (the zig-zag is 1 1/2 inches wide). The bangle is $250.00.
I've also been making some chevron earrings. Two pairs sold at Fiber Feast, then I was at a networking event on Tuesday and 3 people who are on my Facebook/Instagram feed inquired about them also. I finished another pair if black and white ones last night.
Yes, I can do them in pretty much any color.
The size you see here on the blog is $58.00, they're 2 5/8 inches long from the top of the earwire to the tip of the bottom of the earring.
Contact me if you want a pair, I'm happy to make them special for you.
