Spicy Gold Beaded Bracelet
Beaded in peyote stitch, a cuff bracelet that highlights beautiful russet tones and gold-flecked glass beads called ‘goldstone’, as they resemble sparkly sunstones but are actually made from an ingenious glass process. A beautiful Czech glass button finishes.
This lovely beaded cuff is woven from glass beads called ‘goldstone’; named that for the gold flecks embedded inside the glass. They are actually bits of copper, and create a beautiful sparkle within the bead! The seed beads that are used are a shade of gold with a slight rose gold tint.
I love to make bracelets that have the button opening woven in; this avoids an extra clasp and contributes to the sleek modern look of the bracelet. The Czech glass button is a work of art; I basically designed the bracelet around this button, I loved it so much! The pictures show that you can wear this two ways; with the button as the focal ‘bead’, or with the woven part as the focal.
The bracelet has a slinky, silky feeling that is typical of woven glass bead bracelets. It is not a stiff cuff bracelet.
