Bargello Cuff

It's been a very long time since I took on a project such as this one. The pattern is called Bargello and the colors are wonderful. This piece is done on a loom and I had to rebuild mine. I have only done one simple project on a loom recently and this is taking a bit of time. It's going to be nearly two inches wide after I add the final edging and about seven and a quarter inches long. I'm going to make my own clasp since the ones for these are pretty pricey. I'm using Toho seed beads since that's what I have on hand. These come out neater if made with Delicas. I also didn't have all the colors in opaque so the only opaque beads are the black, yellow and orange. The others are either transparent or silver lined. Does give the bracelet a little sparkle.
