I wove a new bracelet, with lots of sparkly crystals!
This bracelet came about after some previous prototypes where I framed a larger bead with a ring of tila beads. In this design, I've framed a cosmic Swarovski crystal.
I like how the straight, defined lines of the tila beads serve as a counterpoint to the asymmetric lines of the cosmic crystals. I also worked hard to develop just the right position for the tila beads while keeping the whole component stiff; they sit at about a 45° angle to provide a shadowbox effect to each component.
It's different than my usual style, but I rather like it!
