I used the St. Petersburg chain technique to weave this bracelet, using the dark, lime peel green seed beads as a base, with a yellow and orange row of beadwork on either side. The feathery shape of the beadwork has a pretty chevron or arrowhead shape. I have finished the bracelet with a beaded button and loop clasp in matching colors.
Dimensions: The bracelet is 1 cm (0.4 inches) wide, and 18.5 cm (7.3 inches) long. When the clasp is secured, the bracelet has an inside circumference of about 17.5 cm (6.9 inches). The beaded button measures 1.5 cm (0.6 inches) across.
I created this bracelet using high quality Japanese seed beads, a fiber optic glass cat’s eye bead, and durable fused nylon thread. The citrus palette is cheerful but sophisticated, and would look great with other dark colors like navy and brown.
This one of a kind bracelet comes wrapped in tissue, packed securely with clean, repurposed bubble wrap or foam sheet, and shipped in a durable Canada Post cushion mailer.
