3.3.08 Braided circlets designed by Jeanette Shanigan for Dvorah's Birthday



This project of "Braided Circlets" (designed by Jeanette Shanigan) appears on p.49 in the Beadwork magazine from October-November 2006. Each loop takes about 20 mn.

I wanted to make this project as a present for my sister Dvorah, for her birthday that was in January. I told it to her and I asked her what colours she would like me to do it. She answered she would like "navy blue and brown". She wasn't sure if the colours match together and I didn't think too much... Huaaa..... I think it looks a disaster! :(

Yabaaa.....

I already have plan B, C and D in case she doesn't like it (B - transform it to a necklace with a spiral, as my friend Orly El-Al did ;), C - connect only the bronze loops to a new bracelet, D - transform it to a slave bracelet). E - make something else....

Même si le bleu n'est pas ma couleur préférée, le mélange avec le bronze est du plus bel effet. On dirait qu'il est tout moelleux, tout doux..
