Blaze - Peyote Cuff Bracelet
This Peyote cuff bracelet called "Blaze" was made for the Etsy Beadweavers April Challenge - Fire & Flowers. The band is made with size 8 seed beads in red. The stitch is two drop peyote with size 11 matching red seed beads used for picots. The focal is a small black button with rows of peyote stitches in yellow. It has many rows of fringe in red, orange and yellow seed beads. The closure is a hand made toggle. The band is a little over 1 inch wide and the focal is 1 3/4 inches wide. This bracelet will fit a size 6 1/4 to 6 1/2 inch wrist.
The theme for this month was Fire & Flowers and I wanted to make a cross between fireworks and an actual flower. I thought the fringe would work well for this.
