An Item A Day - Day 13

I have been working on this piece for weeks.  Hubby says it was more like months.  It was an in between other projects project.  True crafters will know exactly what I mean!  Regardless, it is FINALLY finished.   So it is today's item of the day.

Thousands of tiny glass beads and days of work went into this lovely cuff style bracelet. Subtle, soft tones were used to follow the wandering path of the white beads.

Original design bracelet in teal, lavender, white and silver lined clear seed beads.

This bracelet is 2" or 50 mm at it's widest point. It narrows down to 5/8" or 15 mm. Wearing length is 7" or 18.5 cm.

Strong Fireline thread was used in constructing this piece. It not only gives it durability, but it added body and created a gentle, natural curve to the piece.

Closes with a hidden single snap.
