So pretty! And it's purple,yay!
my favorite color too!
Well......my absolute favorite color of colors is actually red, but....purple's a pretty close second, mostly 'cos it looks so good on me! (lol)
the beads used were purple and white. and of course, blue around the cabachon. the bracelet was made using flat peyote stitch with hex beads. the cabachon was attached using more flat peyote and using smaller beads as it goes up the side to draw it in and hold it down. the cabachon was finally attached to the bracelet. took a lot of work, but another has been started and it's moving much much faster now.
Very nice! I really like that you can see trough the stone! Gives it a nice effect :)
Have a lovely beading day,
Kudos! How long did it take you?

about six hours. made another round on the cab because it just didn't seem secure enough
thanks! i used purple and white hex beads and stitched a flat peyote. the cab is about 1.5 inches high and 3/4 inch wide. it was actually a pendant and i cut off the loop for a chain. i sewed the cab directly on to the bracelet. more peyote type stiches. that was probably the most difficult part.
oh I really like this bracelet!Nice work!!I like purple & blue so it´s a really nice colour combinationI like the design and the fact that i can see througt the (glass?) cabochon it gives the bracelet that little extra detail.6 hours??? you must work really fast, it would have taken me at least 12 if it whas my first time and I whas experimenting
Hope you all are having a great day.If you want to see more made by me please visit my Faebook page:https://www.facebook.com/NiwasSmycken?
LOL...well it is flat peyote stitch which goes really really fast.
I actually started another one yesterday. I found a lovely piece of rose quartz and found some awesome purple/pink hex beads. bead shopping is going to be the death of me!
