Braided Coral bracelet

A second piece made for the 2014 TOHO design challenge. It took very little time to come up with this design. It’s funny how it happens. You can spend hours, days, on a piece and then dash another off without even thinking.

I love this bracelet. It’s very delicate and pretty.

There is a central core of a square stitch strip which is braided with two strung chains of seed beads and Czechmate glass petals. The petals are attached with coral fringing. A simple toggle and clasp fastens the bracelet together.
