Asymmetry



I find it really difficult not to have an even number of things, or a repeating pattern - so this is a bit of a change for me.It's a simple JPL bracelet with little silver nuggets and a silvered glass focal.

I know exactly what you mean Izzy! I'm a bit like that. However, your bracelet looks beautiful and I love the bead!!

Beautiful bracelet! I can't do "asymmetric" either in jewellery or anything else. The asymmetric skirt/dress thing freaked me out! Strange because I love things which aren't quite normal.

I'm so glad it's not just me!!
I think I'm going to make an effort this week to deliberately make something else which is asymmetric, or unmatched in some way - want to play??

Lovely bracelet Izzy. I'm so envious of your JPL chain, I'm hoping to 'crack' it sometime soon.

I have fear of asymmetric stuff too, but I even surprised myself and my friend today when I suggested a way to do a necklace she wanted to have a go at, and it was asymmetric!!

Thanks, Ali! I tried for ages to get my head around JPL - the online diagrams are really not clear. Then one day it just clicked - and it's not hard at all! All that over-under stuff is just confusing - get the first 3 rings in, then make a quarter turn, place the next ring just like the last, make a quarter turn and keep doing it! Just keep placing the rings in the same direction, - job done!

I think it must be something to do with how our brains are wired! I don't know of many people who are comfortable with asymmetry, but the results are worth the efforts, as this bracelet shows, it's so stylish!

Izzy said...

Aww, thank you! That's cheered me up no end - I'm having an annoying day!

I'm laughing at your post! Had a commission yesterday, she wanted it all mismatched and upside down.............I played and played then threw it on the floor, tried again, abandoned it, will try again tomorrow........I'm a lady who has her knicker drawer all neatly arranged, I can't do asymmetric!!!

Beautiful bracelet by the way!!!

Izzy said...

And now I'm laughing at your post! My KD is a tangled nightmare! Oh, the shame of it all!
