To take a break from the hustle and bustle, I have included this inspiration post. I made my “Anastasia Cuff” from entirely Cousin materials, all of which are available at Walmart stores (as well as Michaels, JoAnn fabrics and AC Moore stores).
The original design features deep amethyst and ruby colored beads and crystals.
Made entirely out of a right-angle weave beading technique, I’ve added topstitching detail for dimension.
Rows of ruby glass beads and amethyst crystal rounds add more sparkle and shine!
I used monofilament instead of beading thread to make this cuff, because I feel it is strong and also the translucency complimented the glass beads and crystals.
The toggle clasps act as a focal point, instead of being just a finishing element.
Wearing with the clasps in the front makes for a cool, unique statement!
It’s flexible yet sturdy, and not too heavy. A focal piece for any party or evening look.
