I am pretty certain that I’ve just made my last Rufus bracelet. As much as I love creating these gorgeous things, I have to give my eyes and fingers a rest. Beading is a miniature, tedious, extremely time consuming hobby. I urge everyone to try it!
What’s different about this cuff is that I’ve used all the new colours, – from metallic amethyst to gold-lined grey lilac, but that’s not all of it. The cuff is also rather flexible regarding what size wrist it can fit. If you wear it with a simple strap, the way I have it shown, then your wrist can be anywhere between 7″ – 8″. But if you use the buttonholes the way you would on a dress shirt, then a 6″ – 6.5″ wrist can wear the bracelet if it has been fastened with a regular cufflink.
I rather like the cufflink idea, it seems logical somehow. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a beaded cuff bracelet fasten that way.
