Rabbit Hole Bangle

This bangle is woven in peyote stitch and the whole thing is one continuous piece – each bead is joined to the next to make one continuous band. This is a technique learned from Jean Power who is known for her geometric beadwork. Tweaking her even sided triangles into isosceles triangles with two long sides and a short. This is to echo the quilt shapes.

It is self repeating like a fractal, a series of 5 beads from small to large are stitched and repeated. At the join the bangle is turned in a complete circle so the triangles spray out like the quilt design.

As seen in Jean Power’s book Geometric Beadwork (if you make a purchase from Amazon I’ll receive a tiny commission).

A bangle inspired by the fractal art quilt Rabbit Hole. You can see how the colours work with the printed silk fabric and silk ribbon embroidery.
