Versailles Cuff – beaded bracelet designed by Melanie Potter

Such pretty colours! This is a gorgeous bracelet designed by Melanie Potter. I took a class with her when she visited the Portland Bead Society back in October 2015.

I really wanted to finish this because…… well, I wanted to wear it!

Very detailed and time consuming but just beautiful. The clasp is pretty interesting – a real fiddle to put together. It might help to have someone else put the bracelet on for you but I have found a way to do it myself.

The cuff is made with seed beads, delicas, Swarovski crystals and pearls.
