The COLOR METAL BLOCK BRACELET uses peyote stitch and layered right angle weave stitch to create approximately 1.25" x 1.25" slightly curved components which are linked together with gold-filled jump rings and finished off with a gold-filled slide clasp.
The beads used are Japanese seed beads, size 8/0, 8/0 hex cut, and 15/0, as well as 3mm faceted brass cube beads from India.
This piece was influenced by a design by Venetia Perry, which she calls "Metallic Ribbon Bracelet."
I used one of my color blocking formulas (progressive proportions) to blend three colors, in this case a raspberry, a gunmetal, and a red-bronze. I had my colors "transcend boundaries", that is, cross over from one component to the next, to heighten the excitement of the piece.
