Ruffles On Jewelry?

After having created a few peyote stitch bracelets and knowing how easy they are, I wondered if I could add something to their plain flat profile. The two tone copper one pictured here was one of my favorites but I can’t leave well enough alone. I was itching to add to the basic bracelet and found just the right thing, crystal teardrop beads. Bordering silver seed beads with them gave the bracelet the look of a blouse with a ruffled cuff. I also added teardrop beads along both short edges of the bracelet, making the silver tube clasp invisible when it’s secured. Click “RUFFLE” in credits below to see the complete instructions. You can make this dazzling bracelet for about $12!

      This one took me between 2 and 3 hours but some of that time was spent figuring out the best way to attack the teardrop beads. Thanks for posting your comment.
