Beaded Black and White Bracelet
This is a bracelet I made for my own personal use -- the amount of time needed to make a bracelet of this type makes it's prohibitive to sell, I'd have to charge at least 100$ for it, to make even minimum wage for my labor.
The black and white 'tube' part of the bracelet was created by needle weaving size 15 seed beads in a pattern around larger white beads. Seed beads get smaller as the number for them gets bigger, and size 15 seed beads are very tiny, around 1 millimeter.
The large black and white beads are called Sputnik beads, and I think they nicely compliment the black and white bead weaving. I added a toggle with a shiny red bead, to provide a pop of color.
