In making this latest piece I haven't come up with an official title yet. This is one of those structures that has been floating around in my head for quite a while. I just had to pick the colors and go for it, which I finally did. There was a range of purples, blues and greens I was playing with and this green to blue really spoke to me. I thought that I'd end up going to my dark gold 15/0 seed beads for the netting but I felt I should change it up. The cream worked out very well and this piece is a spark of summer color on this -14 degree F sunny winter day.

This large bangle combines my smaller bangles with a netting design woven through them. The inspiration for this design...get ready for a nerd alert...is from Worf's sash on Star Trek: The Next Generation. With these color choices this bangle obviously wouldn't pass as a Klingon but I have to be honest about it's start.
Love the net frame, great design!
Absolutely stunning. Love the design and the colours!
Jenny, this bangle is wondrous. Do you have a tutorial or pattern for this? I love the open spaces that really draw your eye to the bands of colour.
Thank you Fiona. It's one of my favorites and was fairly difficult to make. I do not have a pattern or tutorial. I make many things up as I go and this is one of them.
