Fanfare

Next up in my endless list of beadwork projects was Fanfare, designed by Marcia DeCoster. This bracelet is made of fan shaped components that are crystal on the outer edge.

I was going to make the entire bracelet in Jet Hematite 2X but decided a different AB crystal for every other fan would be more interesting. Then I changed my mind again and made every fan a different AB color.

It took a while to make all 30 fans. While I was progressing on this bracelet, I got to visit with two out of town bead friends, Beverly Herman and Judith Bertoglio-Giffen!

Judith had one of Sig Wynne Evans traveling bracelets, called Kilim. So, my fans got to play with Kilim for the day.

Near the end of the project I had the task of putting the fans in the order I wanted them on the final bracelet. I played with the idea of a color blend of some sort. But, I ended up mixing them evenly throughout the bracelet.

All in all, a most satisfying project! Now to find someplace fabulous to wear it!
