This pattern is a re-do because the original bangle that I made ended up too big. I had miscounted on my graph paper when I was drafting this piece and I think I was something like 10 beads too long, which is really quite a lot.
The original pattern had a lot of interesting aspects to it, so I decided that when I got around to re-doing it, I would use various parts of the first draft. A few weeks ago I ran into this pattern while I was cleaning my office/bead studio and thought it would be a good match for the colors I was working with for Spring 2015.
I was really drawn to working on this piece while Zack was out of town, so I had the time to actually clock making it, which took me about 8 hours total. This doesn't include the prep for editing the original pattern and computer-work.
I've gotten a few earring ideas going to match this piece, so look out for that blog post on it's way!
