So this is my most recent make:
Contemporary Geometric Beadwork Facebook page that take full advantage of clever use of colour that I thought it was about time I jumped in and joined the joy!
I adore the black and white stripes that almost look like they could be Square Stitch - they're not, everything but the MRAW bellybands are made using peyote.
I'm super glad I used some black magatamas to finish the horns off - they made me chuckle to myself because they change the look of the horns from quite aggressive looking (as in the Red Many Horn) into chipper, playful peaks.
The spots of colour, however, are my absolute favourite part of this bangle. Yes they may just be a tiny part of it, but they really do join the wings, the stripes and the horns together into a whole. I think if I'd left the wings plain black (which I was very close to doing) then it would have felt much more disjointed and possibly would have lost it's playfulness. Playful happiness is what I needed this piece to be - it's a celebration after all!
