my new favorite bracelets

Okay so this week, or at least the first half of it, I might decide to work up another pattern before the week ends, I made a bracelet based on the design of Carolyn DeGroff. I say “based on” because I believe parts of the instructions are missing and it’s all in gray-scale so I made it how I suspected it is supposed to be but I’m still not that sure. I think the design is called "Diagonal Embellishment" either that, or that was just the title of the one page of the directions I had. I made 2 of them and now I have a problem… The pictures came out so awesome that I’m having a hard time narrowing down which ones to put in the blog!
Here are the two bracelets together:
keep scrolling, the pics get WAY better!

 This purple one is the first one I made. It took me two days to complete, mainly because I was also dealing with some computer issues at the same time (my poor baby is dying). Also, it took a while to figure out what I was supposed to do at times so I just winged it.

This blue one here, I decided on the colors last night; basically right after I finished showing off the purple one right after it was completed. I started the base of it before bed, got maybe an inch and a half to 2 inches into it. I worked up the rest, making a variation on the closure, and completed this one before 2 in the afternoon. It quickly became my favorite. Probably because it was so shiny!

 The rest of these photos are just me trying to get artsy with my photography. I hope you like them:

I LOVE how this one came out

They're pretty flexible

This one gives a good view of the inside of the purple one
