Zig-zag bangle

For my birthday my Best Bud bought me a beautiful silver bangle with a message engraved on each side.  I've worn it a lot since and it inspired me to make some beaded bangles.

This one combines peyote stitch and herringbone stitch (which creates the 'zig zag).  It's a ridiculously  simple pattern but took a fair few attempts to get right because the base rows have a nasty habit of twisting without you realising.

This piece allowed me to play with my favourite colours of the Summer.

Hope you enjoy!...
