Pattern Play Bangle 3 got set aside for quite a while since I ran out of a specific color on one of the peyotes stitch rounds that I was doing. I didn't run into this specific color in any beads stores I had gone to, so I went in the "to be finished" bag. I got my Fire Mountain Gems order in a few weeks ago and have been finishing up pieces.
Black and grey normally isn't a color range I stick to, but at the time I started this, I was feeling good about it. I do agree, in general, that this maybe looks a little more elegant than Pattern Play 1 and a darker elegance than Pattern Play 2.
Maybe I was just hearing so much about the whole 50 Shades of Grey book/movie coming out that it was time to finish this also (no, I've not read or seen either, I'm too behind on the times). Just so you are aware, there are far more than 50 shades of grey in beads, especially if you include different finishes. But I digress. I will leave this blog post with my favorite 50 Shades meme that a friend sent me this weekend. Enjoy:
