Girl On Fire Bracelet

Spoiler alert in purple, skip to the black text to avoid anything about the Hunger Games.  This design has been around for a number of years but I thought that the ruffle effect paired with a fire like palette would make a good representation of the look District 12 had during the opening ceremonies of the Hunger Games.
After seeing the movie, it also reminds me of the dress Katniss wore during her interview where she twirled around and the flames danced at the edges of her dress.  I used Topaz 2x AB, Padparadscha AB, and Lt Siam 2x AB for this but you could change up the color combo to suit your idea of fire or even add in the color of coals!

I'll be doing this demo on Sunday April 15 and 29 starting at 2PM at our Mapunapuna Bead Shop!  If you're familiar with bead weaving you can probably figure out the pattern from the picture, just keep in mind that the ruffles give a stretch to the bracelet so when you measure the length I would probably aim for 1/2 inch to 1 inch shorter then normal to accommodate the extra give.  It's a fun design that allows for color changes and combos that can match any outfit!

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you at the store!
