Beaded bracelet

Marcia Kmack of Cave Creek Glassworks gave me the lampwork focal bead as a challenge and told me to "Make something cool".
After a few attempts, I decided to go with the flow of the design.
This creation used large triangular seed beads and incorporates brick, square and ladder stitch.

I wanted a clasp that would not take away from the design. The clasp works on the same principle as a belt buckle. Velcro is hidden inside the peyote/brick stitch clasp for closure.

Thanks Marcia!!

I really like what you did with this, Marcia. The large triangles follow the flow of your focal bead very well. Nice work!

I'd say your additions really enhanced a lovely bead. The colors go together so nicely and it has such a unique look. Good job!
