Ndebele Ruffles on Peyote

Getting a good picture of this bracelet was a challenge because the clear seed beads in the center peyote band created reflections that kept you from seeing the bracelet clearly. I tried taking the pictures in different settings, but none were acceptable to post. My husband suggested hanging it on the rose bush to take the shot. It turned out to be the best idea of all!

The beads placed between each Ndebele point created the ruffles along the edge of the band. That was not the original design intent, but I have learned the hard way to listen to the beads when they begin to speak. I think it gives the bracelet a more feminine look.
