I had so much fun weaving last week’s striped herringbone cuff, that I decided to keep going and make another with a new palette. I wanted to do something that was a little more Egyptian-looking, so I started my palette with navy blue, turquoise and white. It needed a little something extra, so I tossed in avocado green for a dash of personality.
Unlike the first bracelet, this palette didn’t have a smooth graduation, so I switched up the pattern and did double columns in staggered rows. Instead of a toggle clasp, this time I used a cobalt AB druk to make a button, which goes really well with the navy blue seed beads.
Though this cuff is a little bit wider than the first, I didn’t expect it to take much longer than the autumn colored version. The beadwork seemed to drag on for awhile, and I suppose I was more excited about the idea of another herringbone project than the actual making of it. Next week’s bracelet might have to be something light!
