I liked the accordion pattern with the spots and stripe down the middle of each segment. Here’s the final design.
The last in this particular series is a loose interpretation of the black swallowtail butterfly caterpillar. It had a very bold graphic pattern that was fairly variable in the different pictures that I looked at. Here’s a caterpillar from my garden.
And here’s the design:
I just couldn’t resist putting heads on these guys…enjoy!
These bracelets are absolutely wonderful! I love that they have faces too 😀
