Linear Gold by Ellygator Linear Gold by Ellygator
(2011), 9"x 3", Size 15 seed beads (matte dark purple-brown, square gold-lined iris, matte pink-lined crystal, matte raspberry-lined crystal) dyed jasper beads, yellow jade beads, polyester thread.

Stacking the narrow and then flaring gold and pink lines was a nice challenge. I love the mix of organic and geometric that this bracelet assumed when it was done. While I am normally not a pink (or in case of the dyed jasper even magenta) fan, I think the gold and deep brown-purple hues really make for quite a harmonious color combination.

This one has a really nice drape and fit and will get a lot of wear this summer...

Thank you! I am really tempted to try this pattern again with some other colors. It seems to have nice potential.

Oh, I always love my cream whites for summer pieces, so maybe that with some dark bronzes and some blue or green highlights...

Thanks so much! I love 15s, they make for more complex patterns with less "pixelation"...

What a fluid and bold delight! The bead colors compliment each other splendidly (pink and brown are usually a good combo, given the right shades), and the gold lends a nice visual "pop." The only aspect open to question would be the yellow jade beads, as their extreme opaqueness and shape remind me a bit too much of jelly beans! Their color, however, is spot on, so never mind the Jelly Belly comment--that's just how my mind works. *smile*

As a side note, I'm sure you've heard that Yergen Klinsman (sp?) is now the coach for the U.S. soccer/football team. I might have to start rooting for them, just for the coach!

Thank you - the jelly-beans made me smile, particularly as I had to dissuade my nephew last year from digging into a bag of these for exactly the same reason... His mum would not have been pleased.

As for Klinsman coaching the US team, I had heard about it. He's a really nice guy, doesn't really go for that whole superstar crap and has always come over as a very down-to-earth and humble guy. Hope he and the team gel well!

I have a feeling the photo doesn't do this one justice, it is beautiful but I can see that the colors are pretty and vibrant and I love the design!

Thank you! It's a little more subtle in reality. The silver-lined matte beads and the square-hole gold have a really nice shimmer to them when you move.

I figured there was a shimmer there... that is what the camera can't catch. Perty! :D

Beautiful color combination and design! Although I am not a fan of pink by itself, I find that it is a perfect accent color. :)
