Description

I was thrilled to be announced as a member of http://artisanclay. 's Artisan Clay Design Team. For the May challenge, Kristie surprised us with our beads. When my cabochon arrived, the blue glass surrounded by the green stoneware instantly made me think of a cool refreshing pond in the middle of a summer meadow. And so I went with that idea. Think of the white beads as the daisies in that meadow.\r\rI don't often use right angle weave, but decided that I wanted a less "dense" bezel than one done with only peyote would result in. This is a mix; the inner rows on both the front and the back are done with peyote. I intentionally distorted the bezel into a more oval form to show more of green stoneware. \r\rAnd since the cab was set with RAW, it only seemed right (pun intended) that the band be done with it as well. I had fun playing with the number of beads in the stitch in both the bezel and the band. Oh, and your eyes do not deceive you: this was created with size 15/o metallic green irs and 14/o pearl white beads. I felt a little crazy that day.\r\rThe closure is a simple vintage (from my grandmother's sewing kit - so at least 30 years old!) hook and for the "eye" I used the string of beads that keeps the bezel in its distorted form, all hidden on the back side of the Kristie's beautiful cab\r\rThe beaded band is 0.75" wide. The focal is 1.4" across and a little over 0.25" high. The bracelet will fit best on a 6.5" wrist. It will be a little snug, but that will allow the focal to stay on top of the wrist.\r\rWarning: Please don't engage in any wrist-banging activities while wearing this. I cannot guarantee that the button would hold up to that. Also, items with magnetic clasps should not be worn by those with pacemakers.\r\rSIZING\r\rThis is a one of a kind piece that cannot be resized.\r\r\rSHIPPING\r\rThis bracelet will be shipped in an elegant gift box using First Class Mail with delivery confirmation.
