It must have been magic. As I was putting away some stacked up disorganization in the studio (Barbara Fast is coming by today) I "accidentally" found this paua shell donut! Imagine that! Could not stop myself from making this. I love making the 1/2 diamonds (so like in making the stars) and sewing them together. This 'donut' is even bigger so the winged bail is huge. Am wondering if I should embellish it. Hm... Now looking at the photo I see again my feeling that this simple pattern makes the bail 'too big' and yet I do like the lines as the top clings to the 'chain.' Am wishing to release my "embellish to the max" spirit on this one.
