Blue Curls by Ellygator Blue Curls by Ellygator
(2011) 9"x 3", Size 15 seed beads (matte metallic blue, 14k gold, silver-lined teal, silver-lined light blue), vintage glass beads, polyester thread.

I had made this bracelet for a charity auction and gave it up before I had taken a picture of it. A friend of mine ended up bidding on it and gave it to her sister. However, over the holidays I got it back for a few days to fix a ripped toggle bead, so this time I managed to snap a quick pic of it as well.

Thank you, actually it's Peyote. I find that it works really well for designs that have lots of curves and diagonals.

Lastly, the gold adds just the right amount of "pop" to get your attention and break up the monochromatic nature of the piece.

Since I'm under studio-arrest until my pirate finishes preparing my top-secret birthday dinner, I'll catch up with you!

The muted blues of this piece are an interesting change from your usual bold colors. It ends up being a neutral piece that people with either warm or cool coloring could wear. The curling line work is elegant, as always and reminds me strongly of the mats I use for prints of my "Mucha is My Homeboy" piece. The mats come in shades of chocolate, which I think would also be an interesting re-visit option for your bracelet.

Thank you, and I agree, the pattern has probably one or more different color permutations in it. In fact after a few people pointed out there was a heart in it I had this totally unlikely pink Valentines fantasy regarding it. I may resist, though...

*lol* Yes, shades of Pepto and Barbie would be quite the change for you!
