Not unexpectedly, it was even better in person! I decided I had to create something similar with my beads (with her permission, of course). And so was born The Tocadora! None too soon either, because my 10-month old monster puppy destroyed Monster Mash the morning I posted first posted this beaded version (you can see glimpses of the cuff in some of the photos at right). :(
Wonderful stripes of olive and red grace a light eggplant background, in this cuff that hearkens straight back to my patchwork quilting background. These colors are not subtle and the cuff should not be worn by wallflowers. Be warned: you will be noticed.
This bracelet is woven in peyote stitch using Japanese delica beads in matte galvanized eggplant, galvanized olive, and opaque brick red. It is just under 1.7" wide and 7.5" long. The closure consists of a beaded loop and a toggle in the purple beads.
**** If you are a beader who would like to make this cuff for yourself, the Sand Fibers pattern is available here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/SandFibers?section_id=5592136 ****
I can adjust this up or down in size. Just give me your wrist measurement and whether you like a loose or tight fit in the message box.
This bracelet will be shipped in an elegant gift box using First Class Mail with delivery confirmation. You can upgrade to Priority Mail for $3 by leaving a request in the "Message to Seller" box of the purchase order; wait for an amended invoice.
