Helix Cuff

I have had so much fun beading this new cuff!!! I discovered this pattern in a new book, soon to be published, titled Contemporary Geometric Beadwork. Those of us who had the opportunity to pre-order it, were able to get a couple of the directions for pieces that will be included in the book. This is my interpretation of the Helix Cuff.

Fall is my favorite time of the year; the colors are glorious. This cuff, made in three layers, was beaded using Delicas in a wide range of Fall colors.  I made each of the layers with a different sequence of colors, while thinking about looking down and seeing a pile of leaves covering the woodland floor. I also made my own beaded toggle clasp for the cuff.
