The "assignment" for this week in the Year of Jewelry was to make something in one of the Patone colors for 2013. I chose Vivacious, a bright shade of fuchsia which is part of the Pantone Fall 2013 Color Report. I wanted to do some ombre shading, so I chose the cord range in the photo above. So far, so good.
I messed around with the curvy pattern again - its sinuous lines really intrigue me and the shading is such fun. If you follow my blog and saw my last crash and burn on this pattern, you'll be glad to see I started with LOTS of cord this time. (If you don't read my blog regularly, you can find out what I'm talking about in this post.)
Oh, and the "failure" piece? You don't have to worry about him any more - he found a home with a lady who has a 5.25" wrist. All's well that ends well.
