Paying Homage to the Bangle, ad nauseum

Take away the beads. I'm so done with these tila bangles. But as you can see, I didn't get done soon enough. I've done way too many of them and have no idea what to do with them. Yesterday I wore all of them on one arm and they felt great. But I didn't leave my house fearing they would make me look like a crazy lunatic. Maybe I am a crazy lunatic. Certainly, I got stuck in the tila bangle thing there for a while.

I'm done! I've moved on. I'm herringboning and CRAWing my way through a new piece. Not done yet. Photos will come later and be the proof that I'm no longer tila beading. Here's what I did before I found my way clear of these things.

First another metallic-y one:
The bicones made the tilas stand up straight on their own so it's a slightly different look.

But then there are these:
Some have the tile layout, others the stacked one. And one is just inside out because it was different (that's the turquoise one). Crazy, right?

And to see all the craziness in one place, here they all are:



The end. Fade to black. Please.

Way to go, girl! Those are great bracelets, and the colors are awesome. Looks like Christmas gifts to me!

For some reason I never got bitten by the "tila-bug", maybe because I'm more into freeform the last while. However, I agree with Jean, put 'em all on and go - the more you can fit on your arm the better!

Sally, I love bangles too! You are a fabulous bangle designer, I tell you. I can only imagine the work that goes in to creating each one - they do look like they take plenty of time to create. They look fantastic all gathered up for a group shot!! :-)

Well you now have a tila bracelet to match any color outfit! You could also undo them and work on different tila designs. No? LOL!

Mandy said...

LOL! These are awesome Sally! I had no idea you were so hard at work!!! Just think of them as Christmas presents and birthday presents in the making! I think a bracelet wrapped in matching paper and ribbon would be an awesome gift!

LOL - Wonderful Sally. A girl can't have too many bangle bracelets and these are just adorable.
