This bracelet was a Christmas present and made with my adaptation of Ellad2's "Lace Flowers Bracelet" pattern which you can buy HERE. I originally blogged about my tweaks HERE.
I've got one more article ready to post tomorrow but then I will probably have to take a little break from posting. I've posted all of my Christmas beadwork now and I need to take photos of a bunch of new stuff. We've been having a very unusual winter here in Houston this year. Normally it's sunny here at least 80% of the time and I have no trouble getting photos right away as I make things. This year, we've only had sunshine, or even partly cloudy days, a few times the whole winter. So, my beading projects are piling up and I have to quickly take as many photos as I can whenever the sun does appear briefly. The bad news is that the soonest we might see the sun again is next Sunday. In the meantime, I might come up with some other kinds of things to blog about but I might not post every day like I've been doing.
* It's been brought to my attention that these beads aren't really turquoise. I agree, but for some reason that's what I put on the tag on my bag of beads. I honestly can't think of what to call that color because it really is more green than blue but maybe not quite as green as it looks in the photos. I looked through the Pantone color chart and it's similar to the two swatches below. It's not quite as light as the one on the left and not quite as dark as the one on the right. I'd say that it's somewhere between the two.
So, what would you call this color?
