Swirly Buckle Bracelet

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? This band pattern is my original pattern, with all elements being handcrafted by me. (Including the swirl closure). What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you want to try to make it as pictured, I would learn to make the Buckle portion by looking at the February/March 2011 issue of Beadwork Magazine or the book, Shaped Beadwork. Then construct the band using the pattern provided (I omitted the outer border for the portion that goes through the buckle.) If you just like the band, the pattern provided is all you need.

What you will need

  • fireline
  • delicas
  • wire
  • swarovski crystal
