Rufus Wainwright Profile Handmade Beaded Art Square Stitch Wide Cuff Bracelet, One of a Kind, Version 3.0

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, 'Amethyst Rufus' Wide Cuff Beaded Art Square Stitch Handmade Bracelet with a Cufflink Closurethen 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.

A Study in Amethyst - Piano Keys Beaded Art Handmade Square Stitch Wide Cuff Bracelet with Sterling Silver 5 Ring Tube Hook Clasp, v. 2.0, One Of A KindI have just finished a new beaded bracelet. Used a brand new hook clasp instead of my usual multi-strand tube, and I have to admit that the clasp is gorgeous, a little bit of extra design goes a long way! I have also used one of the smallest needles I could manage with, a 0.004, – yes, my eyes! The needle makes a huge difference, the beads sit together much tighter, producing a heavier, more solid feel to the whole cuff.

A lot of people ask me if these handmade bracelets are durable and the answer is: YES! They are, in fact, so durable that you wouldn’t be able to tear one up with just your hands. You simply aren’t strong enough. Every bead is double- or triple-secured with a thread that an average pair of scissors can’t easily cut. If you want to destroy my beaded bracelet, either be armed with a hammer to crush the beads or with a razor to slash off each individual row. And even then it will take you some time…

Eyes Portrait Beaded Art Square Stitch Wide Cuff Handmade BraceletHandmade Portrait Bracelets usually run somewhere between $95 — $145, depending on materials’ cost and the time I have invested in each one. Since every individual bead is attached by hand, one at a time, it takes me roughly 23-25 hours to weave (on average) 2,700 of them together. These are one-of-a-kind, wearable, extremely durable works of art. They are almost indestructible and, after all, uniquely beautiful.
