A Gold Purple Beaded Ribbon Bracelet made of Purple Beads, Silver Lined Glass Beads, Multi Colored beads, and Gold Plated Clasp. The striking combination of purples, blues and greens with a touch of silver lined palest gold beads will compliment any skin tone. This bracelet is created in a pattern that resembles a woven ‘ribbon’. It’s an attractive accessory from dressy to casual. Made with nylon threads made especially for bead weaving and connected with a decorative copper clasp especially chosen for the piece. A perfect gift for anyone who loves to feel the smoothness of quality beads against their skin. You will surely love the way it feels.
I created this Gold Purple Beaded Ribbon 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 7.5 Inches by .45 Inches and has a flat shape on the top with a flat back that lays nicely on your wrist. Closes with a gold plated clasp
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!
