Pinball Bangle



We are headed to the Pinball Expo in Kalamazoo tomorrow and I finally came up with a design this year (I thought about it last year, but it never got on to the graph paper).  I'm still up in the air as to how I feel about it, I think the design still needs more tweaking, but this will have to do for tomorrow.


What would I tweak?  I would have the flippers come to a better point, and I think the gunmetal color of the ball is too dark against the brown background. I should have done the ball in silver to pop it out, or a different background color, but I like the brown and lime green with the bone color of the flippers for a vintage feel.

#CCFF Bangle and Earrings


I'm finally in a place where I can start doing a bit of volunteering here and there.  For the past few years the Capital City Film Festival has been one of my favorite local events.  This year I kept seeing the pattern logo for it and I needed to put it into a bangle.

When I started drafting this piece it, it wasn't looking great and I realized I needed to put it on an angle.  The peyote stitch (which I use in much of my work) lends itself better to angles.


And so, I got the bangle and a matching pair of earrings done for the Red Carpet event last night!

Earrings can be purchased HERE.
