Like many beadweaving projects, this bracelet project lends itself to a wide array of variations by changing certain parts of the design. This direction set expands on some of those possibilities, and it is my hope that by learning how to change the design to achieve different looks, you may come up with some of your own variations as well!
The floral button focal on this bracelet also acts as the button closure, with a button hole built right into the wrist strap. At 1 3/4″ wide, this bracelet is a substantial statement piece, but is soft and subtle at the same time!
Techniques: Right angle weave, netting
