paper bead cuff 3687

A colorful matrix of handmade paper beads and small faceted plastic beads together in a framework of hand-twistd cotton rope.

The paper beads are slightly bulkier so they form a pair of subtle ridges. The plastic beads have flat triangular faces which creates sparkle reflections.

Three plastic buttons and integral loops are an easy and secure closure.

This bracelet was made on a cylindrical mold so the shape is naturally curved from the center to the thinner edges.

Waxed nylon thread binds everything together.

8" (203 mm) circumference

Very lightweight compared to similar bracelets made with glass beads .7 oz / 22g
