Sunny Citrine

About this design:

"Sometimes I'm quite astounded. I'll be baking a pie and end up with a cake."
I heard a contestant say that on the Great British Baking Show and had to laugh. It sounded so much like me when I'm working on a design. I was getting ready to work on a totally different necklace. I had all my beads laid out on my work surface. Many different colors and shapes when I saw the Citrine beads. All of a sudden I was working on a chainmaille bracelet.


Jump rings for the chainmaille weave and Citrine.

    Sweet, sweet, sweet! So much to enjoy in this bracelet. I like multi-colored jumprings in the weave, and especially how you layered the rings next to the Citrine segments & alternated their color on each side. Kye, I love your style! :)

    At first glance, I saw a lovely, neutral bracelet that would look great with any outfit. On closer inspection, the multicolored chainmaille is a TKO!

    Fantastic bracelet! I love the mix of jump ring colors. The citrine works so beautifully with the weave. When the judge of creativity hits to change your design it does create a more creative product.

    Kye, your work is nothing less than perfection – this is an amazing bracelet. The Citrine pairs excellent with the varying color tones of the wire. Fantastic! And I especially like how you just followed your heart to create this beautiful work.

    Indecision is the key to flexibility, don’t make up your mind until you have to. Cake or pie, chainmaille and citrine.. Necklace or bracelet. It’s all good and makes an outstanding design. Love it!
