Beaded cuff bracelet

When the strong wind calmed down a bit, I managed to make this too (I rarely sit inside if the weather is nice in Portugal!). I've never done this stitch before, and although I used the wrong thread so it's not as rigid as it should be, I really enjoyed making it.

This was made using Peyote stitch in a mix of cylinder seed beads and ordinary seed beads in a combination of sizes. If I can find the right "thread" here in the UK without having to pay a ridiculous amount of money for it, I want to have another go in a different combination of colours. I might do a "matte" version too just to see the different effect you can achieve

ohhh!!! this bracelet is so nice .... it must take you ages to do something like this whith so many tiny beads.

Croap Queen said...

Thank you Nuria. It probably took about 3 or 4 hours in total. The stitch is quite easy once you get the hang of it.

Thank you Tiggy! I need to get the right wire and try again to see if I can make it more rigid. Watch this space :-)
