I finished this piece a few months ago but keep forgetting to blog about it. I keep thinking I had already because I've been wearing it a lot. I guess I had first crested this design in 2010 with the first bangle inspired by a dress/tuinc piece that I had bought. The blog post about that one can be found HERE.
The original was a 4 pattern repeat in design but I had not repeated the colors. This bangle (and the one I made over the holidays this past year) do repreat in color. I like them both ways, the color repeating is easier to do and keep track of but sometimes I just have to use as meany different color beads and finishes as I possibly can.
The original earring design for this bangle was a large square and small square with uneven edges, I decided to go a different route and just pull my basic sized eearring from the original bangle design itself and I think it is a much more successful design.
