More Work on New Cuff

Almost finished with my latest cuff. This one is just so beautiful I love the coloring - the turquoise with the copper. I should finish it today and glue it to the cuff blank - then just the edging and it will be finished. I am already planning my next cuff. I also want to try one without the cuff blank but need to think about a closure - I am not too keen on the hook and eyes so I need to research this.

Hi Jean! I love the colors, turquoise and copper together. You are a bracelet wonder!! I haven't tried a cuff blank yet, but always make mine "soft". I need to get my nerve up to do it! A button and loop closure is what I have always used. It's very secure, too. There are so many cool buttons out there! Keep beading!!

Thanks Artful Diva Designs that was what I was thinking - a button and loop - I need to try this I love to buy buttons

Button and loop is one possibility. Or how about press buttons (?)? You could hide them underneath the ends, so they're unvisible.

WOW! Your work is gorgeous! How do you get the beads to curve so neatly?

I only add 2 beads at a time and sew them down and go thru them again
