Rocky Path bracelet, and I was more than happy to oblige. This meant making a new version of the design, and choosing a new color palette.
Because I only have a handful of Delicas to choose from, creating a new set of colors for this bracelet meant working around what I had - burgundy, black, gray or silver-lined red. The burgundy are my favorite, and since I had yet to try them out, I chose them for the base of this new bracelet.
I wanted to make a palette that would work with both the Delicas, and the shape of the beadwork, so I combined red, blue and transparent blue lined with red for a berry colorway. This time around, I stuck with just two bead sizes.
I was really excited to try out this design with a new set of colors, and see how it would come out. I saved a little time by incorporating the edging right into the peyote stitch, and ended up with a pretty interesting bracelet! I really like the way the colors and texture work together.
I only finished the bracelet with enough time to share it with you today, and now it’s on to writing up the steps to create it., along with the brick and square stitch button closure. If all goes well, I’m also hoping to create a beaded clasps compilation PDF, with all of my favorite metal-free closure designs.
