Black & Brown Insanity


About this design:

I fell in love with the wrapped layered cuff bracelets done by Sonali. It's been awhile since I have done any bead weaving. The seedbead part went well, and so did adding the larger glass beads in the center. However, when it came to wrapping and attaching the leather cord....well, my patience ran out in a hurry! So I decided to just leave it as is, and added a silver button closure. This is why the word "Insanity" is in the title! I think I had better stick to wire and chain beading! LOL

Components:

Black #8 seedbeads, oval multicolor glass beads, Silamide thread and silvertone button closure.

    I think this is very cool as is! :) I tried stitching a box chain alongside the leather on one of these bracelets. Total fiasco! :)
