I did not start creating jewelry in the beginning. I started working with beads because I wanted to bead a pair of shoes in the style of the Peranakan (Malay and Chinese mix heritage) women who live in the South East Asian region. They have the most beautiful colors and designs and I wanted a pair of my own. Once I made the first pair, then a second, then a third. Then I discovered other kinds of beads and other methods of putting the beads together. You can say from then on there was no stopping me.View all patterns by designer (77) »
P-Nut Squared is inspired by the beautiful tiny peanut shaped beads. Depending on the colourway P-Nut Squared can be either a fun piece jazzing up your weekend gear or a sophisticated elegant piece well suited to grace your wrist on any occasion.
A right angle weave base is fully embellished with these peanut shaped beads. The surface is further embellished with tiny round seed beads. This allows the cuff to look very rich and luxurious while still feel very light in spite of the heavy embellishments.
An innovative clasp made fun by a large peanut closure gives this piece its squared name - a big peanut securing the small peanuts - P-Nut Squared. To prevent the two ends of the cuff from opening when worn, a button hole is created at one end. On the other, the big P-Nut and a loop with an overlap area.
Definitely a challenging piece even for the expert beader. You will be well pleased with your accomplishments once its on your wrist. It will certainly "wow" your audience as well.
