My sister and I saw a bracelet at a local bead shop we frequent and we decided we just had to learn how to make it.
Through some trial and error, we figured out the pattern and discovered that it just screamed to be modified by incorporating different sized seed beads, colors, etc.
Here’s one of my early modifications of the basic pattern in my favorite color – Cranberry. I love the play of matte vs. shiny beads and have some fun adding a decorative picot edging.
The bracelet was finished with a magnetic slide clasp that disappears when the bracelet is worn so that it looks like a continuous cuff.
What surprised me the most with this design is how very flexible it is, given that it layers a base of peyote stitch cube beads with a thick finish layer of seed beads.
