Big bold black beads of polymer clay, surrounded by shiny beadwoven ruffles made from opaque black beads with a tiny picot edging of pale blue and bronze - WOW. Black beauty, indeed.

This wonderful one-of-a-kind bracelet was inspired by the big beads, beautiful polymer clay swirly beads made by my friend DDee Wilder (aka Malodora). The beads are mostly black, but they have swirls of metallic color in them, so they catch the light and sparkle like crazy.

The bracelet was created using a technique called Oglala (a netting stitch developed by the Lakota Indians). Oglala bracelets are as much fun to make as they are to wear -- it's such a kick watching the ruffles develop as I stitch. I chose to add picot edging to this one, using two colors of tiny beads to accentuate the colors in the polymer clay beads. The polymer clay beads range in size from about 1/2" (12mm) up to almost 1" (24mm) in diameter.

♦ Width: approximately 1-1/4" (32mm)
♦ Length: 7.5" (19cm), when clasped
♦ Closure: Loop and polymer bead
♦ Technique: Oglala
♦ Materials: Artisan polymer clay beads, Czech glass beads, Fireline

♦♦ This is a one-of-a-kind piece and can't be altered, but if you really love the look of it and would like something similar, contact me. I'd be happy to create something special just for you.

Packaged in a beautiful gift box, perfect to give as a present to someone special or to yourself!
