Lampwork donut in "Indian Blanket" colors by Outwest. (I just love these!) I was going to do a button thing but I didn't like it and ended up with this. Simpler seemed better given the boldness of the colors of the rings. A little leather cording, some more lampwork and some carnelian. (Turquoise lampwork by Meital, dark red by Pinocean, butterscotch by TheSpacerQueen.
After I listed these I looked at my shop and I thought "HOLY CRAP LOOK AT ALL THE CIRCLES!!" Circles EVERYWHERE. Every blessed thing in my shop is ROUND. I imagine that has some psychological significance. It really bothered me. I should change the name of my shop to AllCirclesAllDayLong.
So I made something with a rectangle.
This fabulous bracelet bar is by CapturedMoments (I have others--I think I did a little mini bead porn post on these actually). Tried virtually all my hand-dyed silk ribbon with it (from FlameKissedArtGlass--who is currently on vacation) and I liked this "Chameleon" the best. Muted mauve and sage. Threw in some copper, garnet, Crazy Horse Stone and green pearls and called it good. It felt so good to have a pointy shape in my shop for a change. And then it sold. So now I'm back to circles. Time to make another one. I know I have some pointy beads somewhere, or at least some squares. I know I have some triangles. And some stick shape beads. I need to break up the circles with some sticks and triangles. Get ready!
