Nope, Just Can't Leave Things Alone!
Oh yeah....no 12 step program, either...LOL!
There is a pattern called Try Triangles, a lovely bangle by Shelley Nybakke
Lots of discussion going on over at Beaddreamz yahoogroup about this pattern, and of course, having alot of those metal 8o beads from kandrasbeads.com in several colors, I had to make one in vintaj bronze. The base is two units of RAW wide, the sides are one unit each, with 4mm Czech firepolish at the top, and 8o hex beads, culled for size- the larger used at the top and thinner used at the base- between units on the sides, which made for a naturally curved piece. I didn't want a bangle, so used homemade jumprings of Parawire, and an S clasp of same, to close.
I love how it feels, and will be making more of these...those metal beads rock, and fit so nicely in RAW!
Oh, and used 10# smoke Fireline..
