I was really struggling trying to get good photos of this set. I've had one of those weeks where my motivation is non-existent and then when I did get to taking photos I struggled getting the color correct and the lighting kept being off. I do love how this set turned out though. It's not as aggressive as black and white checkers cane be, it's a nice, more subtle piece.
I created this bangle after finishing my first checker sets which people seemed to like at the Block: Aid event. I was using the tiny bangles that I'm working towards removing from my stock on both ends of this piece also. For the earrings I pulled similar colors from my delica bead stash to match up but still be slighty different.
The photos don't really show it, but the grey beads have a little bit of a rainbow tinted into the matte glass. They're really lovely.
I think the colors for this set were spurred a little by the Pantone colors for this year: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating.
