heather and blue grey one button string weave cuff 4122

 This is an example of the bracelet design that is covered by this tutorial: Part 1 click here

The core is grey cotton with a round "boulder button" made of polymer clay. The string is a lightweight twisted cotton tapestry woven onto the core strands.

All materials are hand dyed in a water based system, more about this process here and also here.
 Soft and flexible this is sized for an adult wrist measuring 8" (203 mm) circumference and about 1" wide.

The rounded button slips easily through  the loops but stays put when engaged.

Polymer clay is a great material for simple elements like buttons. It's easy to handle and quick to make up new buttons if you run out unexpectedly.

Here's the flat-out view as you would see the project on the loom but without the loom of course.
