Usually I am a bit behind the power curve when it comes to holiday themed jewelry, so I'm fairly impressed with myself this time around - having actually finished this an entire month before Halloween. Go me!

Try as I may to work on other things (I have a peyote stitch box and bracelet in the works), I keep coming back to cubic right angle weave. This bangle was a labor of love - it took over 15 hours to create. In the planning stages, I had only intended to make the a bangle from 3 strips of cubic right angle weave and leave it at that. When I got to the "end" though, I kept on going. Since I had the perfectly matched colors of fire polished beads, I layered them right in, and everything turned out even better than I imagined in my head. The fire polished beads give the bangle just enough sparkle to catch the eye.
