A brand new design (yes you got the iphone shot yesterday when it was newly finished, below are the better photos).....The Bead and Button proposal deadline is close and although I have two new bracelets, I decided on Friday I wanted a third new option and began beading.....Friday afternoon at the Grove, Saturday on the veranda, finishing up with a shorter beading session Sunday afternoon.
I love the texture of the band,the staggered bumps, the colorplay, and the bezel is a clever bit of beadweaving which nicely captures the button.
It's a rare day when Mark says stunning, but that is what he said and then he named it the Rising Sun. He enjoys having input. He was responsible for the decision to go with a round focal medallion and the center button. I must say I think he had a good design aesthetic here, the bracelet looks really really pretty on. I hate the thoughts of mailing it off so soon, but I must.
