Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic Bead Weaving

Pattern Description:

Cubes! Cubes! Cubes!

Different colors placed together to give the illusion of 3-dimensional cubes. Look at it from one direction and the cubes are facing upwards. Turn it round and the cubes are now upside down!

Whats happening? Which is the top? Dilemma indeed.

The closure takes advantage of the 3-D cubes and end in 3 points with a simple loop and toggle ball ensemble. And to carry on the cubic dilemma, little cubic crystals form the ball portion of the clasp.

An even-count peyote cuff that is guaranteed to wow your friends everytime you wear it.
