Wanted to get the effect of tourmaline slices.
The same 8 colors are used in each pentagon; I just moved each color “in” one set of rows as I made the individual pentagons.
This was a request from someone who likes the combination of those 4 colors in mineral stones. 🙂 I was considering how best to do that in a pentagon shape, and ran across a picture of a slice of tourmaline that had almost the exact same pink-to-outer edge of dark gradation as the outer pentagons I have here. Tourmaline crystals are quartz-based and so 6-sided, but the similarity worked fine for the color order.
I’m still amazed that sewing the pentagons together edge to edge worked as well as it did. Peyote stitch and Delicas; what do you know.
Each pentagon is a little less than an inch, so with 9 pentagons it’s a little over 8 inches – appears to be a good bracelet length.
Thoughts and comments welcome!
