When I was making the Cellini spiral I could see that it was going to be a pretty generous tube shape, and it just seemed to be calling out for something to be pulled through it. Then I remembered the sari silk that Christine so generously shared with me. I am really loving this sari silk from Darn Good Yarn. And, I knew the silk was going to be perfect to try these new end caps, which did prove to be very easy to use. Just hook a little wire for wrapping at the end and pull through the top of the cap. Easy peasy.
The thing is, that as I looked at the bracelet I knew I wasn't yet finished with this design. The silk was taking me some place else, and I went in search of inspiration. I had a little bit of fun with mood boards, one from a Turkish wedding, the other Indian. Either could work. So to complete the look I had in mind I needed a little bling ... Sultan style. I found these metal sequins, yes folks I said sequins. I know how much I swore and yelled at the sequins for the Sequintastic challenge last year. But I'm embracing my inner bling; especially these metal ones that give just a little jingle when you wear it. I bought extra, so these fun little sequins will be showing up again.
This is part of a beadweaving series that I'm running this week for the upcoming A Time to Stitch Challenge by Christine of One Kiss Creations & Therese of Therese's Treasures. The Blog Hop reveal is next Wednesday, May 15.
