Tangerine Tango bracelet

I'm not just embroidering, I do still make jewellery. As mentioned before, I've taken on the Pantone Colour of the Year, Tangerine Tango, as a personal colour challenge for 2012. Here's my first finished piece inspired by that vibrant red orange.

This is a simple braclet made from a large gold-plated curb chain and heavy space-dyed rayon yarn that I wove through the links of the chain. I finished off by adding a big lobster clasp to the chain (with unsoldered chains like this one you don't need jump rings, just attach the clasp directly to the chain by opening the link like a jump ring).

Simple, but I like it. Not my favourite colours, but I don't hate them. I'm probably going to do some more bracelets in this design, trying different yarns, cords and ribbons to see how that changes the look.

So, anyone else who's challenged themselves and made something Tangerine Tango yet?

  1. Oo I like that! Still not my fave color but... the more I see it the more it grows on me! I've been considering trying a little 'tango' project myself, but I'm having issues just trying to keep up with my own challenges, let alone participate in projects and other challenges >.< I keep wanting to do the ABS monthly challenge, and this month even have ideas,, but...I can't seem to make myself get to work on it O.o

  2. Your braclet has a Chanel feel to it. It is definitely good to experiment and stretch your creativity.

  3. Thank you!

    I'm actually starting off the year pretty ok in terms of keeping up with challenges. At least my personal challenges and TAST, it's ages since I entered Art Bead Scene, Vintaj, Operation Tackle That Bead Stash or any of the other monthly challenges...
