Three new bracelets

I decided to revisit the beaded cuff design and ramp down the number of colors as well as simplify the pattern.  This is not quite as interesting to weave as a more colorful piece with several or more bead and crystal shapes, but still fun to weave and finish and I really like the final results.

Here is the trio!

This one is made of gold finished beads only.  Some are rose gold, some are iris gold, some are pink or yellow gold.  The shapes are all round and the sizes range from 15/0 to 11/0 to 8/0.  The fire polish crystals in the middle are 24 karat gold plated (and yes, they cost a fortune!).

This piece combines  rhodium plated size 11/0 Delica beads with fire polish crystals and size 11/0 beads for the sides.

The last in the trip is again all gold but this time a combination of Delica beads in both rose and yellow gold finishes.  The crystals are swarovski in colors in the rose, purple, green range.  The trim beads are 11/0 and 15/0 round beads.

What follows are some more angles on these three bracelets:

And lastly, the wrap bracelet revisited with pictures on an arm and spread out.

    Geez…can’t decide which version I like! I guess I’ll have to make both versions!
