Miyuki Color Block Cuff Bracelet

Showcase the perfection of Japanese Miyuki Cube Beads by creating this two tone cuff bracelet. The cube beads fit together nicely to create geometric color blocks along the length of the bracelet which is finished with a simple tube clasp.

I chose an opaque turquoise blue and gold for my bracelet, accented with sterling silver 5 strand spacers  that look like sterling silver rondelles. The spacer bars are not only functional, but mark the beginning of one color and the end of another.

This is a simple way to create a bold look that is not overdone. Feel free to experiment with other color combinations or other types of beads.

Hi, I was looking for ideas for a clasp for a 1 1 14" cube-beaded bracelet. I like the bracelet you have displayed and I do have some multi-strand spacer bars, which I will use, although I have 8 4mm cube beads in the bracelet.

I also plan on making the bracelet on you blog. It's simple but beautiful; my kind of project.

I love your site. Thanks for all of the great tips and designs. Pat Smith
