Miyuki has three sizes in their Triangles. The largest size 5/0 was used in my last cuff bracelet. The next smaller size is 8/0 and the smallest triangles are the 10/0 triangles. I chose these to use in my latest project. Another cuff bracelet in done in Peyote 3-drop.
I chose 10TR1830 - it is a rich blue that sparkles in the light.
The width of this bracelet is 7/8ths of an inch. I chose an abalone pendant as the clasp that is the same width. It came pre-drilled with a hole at one end. I used my trusty Dremel to drill a second matching hole at the other end.
I attached the bracelet to one hole with more of the 10TR1830 triangles as spacers. Then I used matching 8TR1830 beads to make a triangle to use to secure the clasp. Here is a side view of the pendant as it is modified to be a clasp.
Next I added a loop at the other end of the bracelet to complete the clasp.
This bracelet is designed to wear the clasp on top, where the beautiful abalone pendant can be appreciated.
I love these colors together. The abalone pendant makes a very nice focal piece for this bracelet. The Miyuki Triangles, in all the sizes are proving to be versatile and the rich colors are a definite must have when designing jewelry!
