All That Jazz

This is a bracelet that my friend, Terri, showed me how to make...it's basically a glorified right angle weave tennis bracelet with 15/0s in the ditches...easy to make...I reinforced it A LOT because I used gold KO thread before I EVEN thought about the sharp edges on the metal beads...should've used Fireline but I didn't want thread to show...even though I had to reinforce a lot, I'm really glad that I used the gold thread.  The bracelet has a nice feel.  I used 2.5mm gold-filled rounds for the base and embellished with 15/0 gold Miyuki's and 3mm gold-filled bicones...used the the same 15/0 gold Miyuki's in the ditches...used a magnetic button clasp.  Email me at wowmaw@aol.com with any comments or questions!  :)
