I'm not one of those people . . .

. . . who sketches and/or plans a jewelry design, they just sort of happen to me. And that probably explains why they don't always work out, but so goes the life of the ADD-afflicted. I sat down earlier today to work on something else entirely and the next thing I knew, this bracelet started to form in front of me.

As you will notice in the photo above, my work surface in the motorhome is just about as neat and organized as the one at home. But, I digress. After taking time to make my jumprings to join my riveted links together, it occurred to me that two jumprings with a chain link between would look slightly less primitive than just joining the pieces with giant jumprings. I took the whole thing apart and put it back together with what I thought was a better look. You can see both ways in the photo below.

So, if you're a sketcher and a planner, I congratulate you. And I'll just continue to stumble along the way I'm used to.
