I'm calling this the weekend wonder partly because I wonder what I was thinking when I was assembling it. I didn't think the design process out very well and have discovered that while it looks nice laid out flat it has some undesirable quirks when on the wrist.  So now I'm wondering how long it's going to take to undo all the connecting weaving and redo it so that it looks just as good while wearing it as it does laying flat. the crystal components in the middle are from the book Endless Sparkle by Aimee Carpenter

i love making a bunch of smaller components and then putting them together in a variety a different ways.

 

 

Happy Beading!

I hate when it looks great until you actually try to wear it. I sometimes think I do more UN-beading than I do beading. Drives me nuts.Confused

I hope you get it all sorted out 'cause it is a really nice design.

Thanks for sharing it.

ah, what a tangled web we weave................... ok, so it really does look very "webby" and cool laying flat. what happens when it is curved onto the unwilling/unwitting wrist?

lordy I hate to take stuff apart and usually once apart it gets put back in tubes and sort of forgotten about. or it goes up on my corkboard to be looked at regularly until I either figure it out or cut it up. Donna

Well, I've got it torn apart and am working on some design alternatives. I'll be sure to post a new photo here of the new design when I get it done.
