Split Proto-type

When I was gushing the other day about one of the drawings in my sketchbook done with that wonderful gel pen I stumbled across, this was the design I was drawing. I have had a half & half design mixing cords and wire trapped in my head for weeks. I've been so busy with stuff, that it wasn't until a few stolen minutes on Friday that I have been able try it out. My bead making time has been non-existent this past week with all the projects going on around the house (yes, we are still cleaning up the sea of sticks in the backyard, and my studio is now officially up to par on power standards), so I had to make due with the beads on my desk.

It isn't exactly what I drew, I still want to mess around with the design some more. I want to change up the beads too. As for how it feels when you wear it... I LOVE IT!! If fits just how I wanted it to. The twisted wire side hugs the inside of your wrist. Just how it should. There is no rubbing of beads against your clothes. There is no twisting your wrist to get the dangles where they should be. It just works. I like the chunk of the bracelet on the outside too. I think a few more dangles are in order though.

I am excited to work on a necklace version of this design. (Another one of the sketches in my book.) I just need to get to my torch.

I am open to comments... lemme know what you think of this new "Split" design.

Kerry, I love the bracelet. I'm always looking for new and different jewelry. You're such an inspiration to the industry.

I love it! I think it's beautiful just the way it is, and I'm not usually a "blue" person! Great design.

Love the split design! But I'm a huge fan of Asymmetry anyway.
Love the colors too!

Very nice! Trying to balance out a bracelet so that the dangles stay where they are supposed to is always an issue, but your bracelet looks as though you've solved that problem! Lovely colours, too.

It's really cool! I like the fit of it (from the picture). I love the way asymmetry always works when you do it.

more dangles!

I love it. Jewelry that feels good is important.
