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?
