Denim Lapis and Coin Bracelet

I think I’ve finally broken out of my single strand bead bracelet mode. Seriously, that was where my natural tendencies leaned, but I got to where I wanted to stretch and enhance what I was doing. A single strand can be quite lovely when well designed, but I was getting into seriously repetitive territory and just plain wanted to broaden what I had to offer.

So, I’m really happy to make something like this bracelet that weaves and meanders from one strand to two and then back again. I also like including a variety of finishes and textures in the elements I chose. I think they give visual interest. I also made the clasp. That is another area of learning and exploration for me. I do still use commercial clasps, but I’m starting to want the handmade ones more and more. This is good.
