A Blue Gold Nautical Bracelet made of Blue and Gold Silver Lined Glass Beads, White Pearled Glass Beads and Two Vintage Nautical Buttons Closure. There is something about a vintage nautical button that adds such class to any outfit. The striking combination of warm blues and golds accented with white that makes a stylish fashion statement. Made with nylon threads made especially for bead weaving and connected with a decorative copper clasp especially chosen for the piece. A glamorous gift for anyone who loves to feel the smoothness of pearls against their skin. You will surely love the way it feels.
I created this blue and gold nautical bracelet using a technique called bead weaving where the beads are added in a pattern, many times adding row upon row until the design is complete. This creates a strong piece because often the thread has to pass through the beads many times to get the desired pattern. (In my work I make sure that every layer of beads has at least two passes of thread to make all the beads secure within the piece even if I have to essentially ‘repeat’ the pass on that row.) Bead weaving has a suppleness to it that allows it to curve and drape over the shape of your body making it very comfortable to wear.
This bracelet is 7.75 Inches by 1.15 Inches Wide and has a rounded shape on the top with a concave back that creates a bit of dimension on your wrist and the two vintage button closure makes it easy to close with one hand.
MEASURE your wrist for a bracelet by wrapping a string around the largest part of your wrist (where the bone is) and place this length against a ruler. Then add 1/2 inch to allow for comfort. This is your bracelet size!
