one button beaded cuff red and tan earth tones 2618

 All cotton cord of various textures from the braided clothesline cord, the traditional cotton cable cord, and a loose braided cotton are used to build this warm earth-tone color combination. Like the other bracelets in this series the materials are all from the scrap (er...resource!) box. These days I have to battle the cat for possession as he thinks this is a box of cat-toys.

The construction technique is shown starting with part one of a seven part tutorial.
 Two offset rows of glass beads are worked into the pattern a dark purple alongside the brown cords and the brighter red in the center of the red cords.

Size is a medium 7 1/2" (191 mm)

Construction is typical edge stitching using the four ply nylon thread and compressing the cords to make the firm but flexible fabric. A brown plastic button connects to the stirrup loop for a simple closure.
