Wavy Wedges bracelet design, I asked readers to share some ideas for using the flip-flop pattern of seed bead rows and panels. I was thrilled with all of the unique suggestions, but a little surprised that watermelons wasn’t one of them!
I’ve been sitting on the idea to use the shapes as fruit slices for a long time. It’s a relief to finally get to try one out. I knew for certain that a watermelon pattern would be one of my weekly bracelet projects, but other ideas kept getting in the way.
I finally got around to penciling in this bracelet. Coming up with just the right pattern for the black ‘seeds’ was the tough part. I kept grabbing the nearest piece of paper and doodling little rows of circles, and coloring them in at different intervals.
Still, I’m happy with the way this piece turned out. The hot pink seed beads remind me of watermelon flavored bubble gum and jump ropes. Now I can’t wait for summer!
