These were my first two attempts at working with seed beads.  I thought they would be really easy projects, and they were, but man, was it time consuming.

For the first one, I reinforced the clasp and button with wire, because, just string seemed too flimsy.







Thanks for looking Smiley

They came out great, expecially for your first time! I love the first one, and the button you used to clasp it is very pretty!

Thank u everyone Smiley  Im Sew Silly (cute name btw), I got the button from Button Odyssey on etsy.  She has a beautiful selection. 

Btw, is there any suggestions on how to get a cuff like the first one to be adjustable?  A lot of ppl have asked me to make one of these and in order for it to look right it has to fit perfectly.  It would be nice to make it adjustable somehow so I have some in stock all the time.
