Once done with my simple bezel, I was trying to decide if I continue to follow the basics which would have led me to create a beaded bale for a necklace. But predictable just isn't me. I took a left had turn at this point. I wanted to create an "organized freeform" piece (as I've started to call this style). A perfectly done bezel, but with a soft weave for a bracelet and silk accents. The band stitch here is actually a zig zag stitch that I created in 4 pieces, and then 'zipped' up; or stitched together. The silk runs along the sides, which I then did simple stringing around giving it a 'twisted rope' effect for edges. I finished with a braided loop to close around a Deco flat button that my friend Christine gifted to me; which I LOVE, LOVE! (yep, double love). I think this bracelet has that 'sultan' look to it, and it feels like a comfy old cotton T-shirt on.
