A friend sent me a pictures of a bracelet, with a note asking “Can you do this?” After a bit of close examination, I realized that the beauty was in the changing bead sizes. The stitching was the same throughout the length of the bracelet.
Enter Gracious Greenery. My attempt at creating something from a picture alone. A successful attempt too, in my humble opinion. Besides playing on color and size, this bracelet also has a texture that, alas, does not photograph well. Each of the segments is concave, (or convex, depending on how you wear it) so it stands up off the wrist as a little dome.
It’s an interesting detail that takes the bracelet from being simple (almost boring) to unique. It was also fun selecting the colors, since there are 4 different bead sizes, and of course, there was no chance I would have the exact same color in each size. A blessing rather than a curse.
