The theme of this week is Serendipity. Although I *did* think of a design for the theme, I was more interested in working right now on this particular bangle, called "Queen of the Desert". The chalcedony beads were just asking to be put in rows with the rectangular double drilled bali beads. When combined with the hilltribe smaller rectangular beads, the entire design just seemed to fit together: geometric, but ornamental at the same time.

The sketch (below) show how the design can be altered to fit more rows of beads.
