Masterpieces from Mistakes

In today's Jewelry Making Daily the topic was "Making Masterpieces from Mistakes".  I can't say how true this is!  My Art Deco inspired bracelet design resulted from a mistake. 

I was trying to make a flat, peyote/herringbone stitched square with triangular sections in the design.  I didn't have the right sized beads in the herringbone part and it kept curling in on itself.  Instead of fighting it, I used the curl to make the dimensional turnover shaped components and the design unfolded from there!  Yay for mistakes!!  New inspiration from the unexpected!
