This wide cuff leather beaded bracelet was inspired by those warm days of sunshine, flowers and honey bees. This lovely bracelet was created by using a yummy yellow leather. At each end the bracelet begins with braiding using a square knot technique. Then begins the hand sewing of the beads, stones and crystals. The bracelet is started out metallic bronze seed beads which graduates in size to meet with two rows of black agate rounds. In between the two black agate rows are faceted topaz crystal rounds which is reminiscent of the color of honey. The bracelet closure is created by securely knotting a button hole and to finish it off I used a perky antique brass metalized resin honey bee button. Check out his great detail from his eyes to the tips of his tail.
This bracelet is 8 inches in length which makes it perfect for a 7 to 7 3/4 inch wrist. Make sure you measure to ensure a good fit. Measure your wrist by using a flexible measuring tape, measure just above (towards elbow) the wrist bone, then add 1/4" to 1 " (1/2" is average) depending on how tight you like your bracelets to fit. That is the size bracelet you would wear. These bracelets cannot be re-sized. Mix and match your bracelets and stack them according to today's fashion style trends.
Do not immerse your bracelet in water as it could cause the leather to stiffen.
