This one has proved to be a true challenge.
I have been reading my new book, the wonderful Contemporary Geometric Beadwork by Kate McKinnon and a troop of wonderful beady people (me included). So my brain was full of beadweaving when I took on this challenge.
Here is the first attempt to create some sort of Rick Rack segment between sliders.
That wasn't working out swiftly enough, I will have to think about it longer. So, I decided to make some peyote tubes. I really like the greenish blue with the gold, it was a color combo that brought to mind Egyptian faience. I picked up some green blue chinese beads and some magnetic clasps. Here is an in-progress shot:
The end bracelet is cuff like without the bulk. I like the boxiness of it though.
I may restring and make the ends go together to have one clasp point. Here is another look:
Thanks, Lorelei, for a another interesting challenge. I would have never picked these components up on my own!
