Back to bracelets

We just finished another cuff. We like these cuffs. They're not exactly dainty but they're pretty cool.

This one measures 8 inches long and is about 1 1/2 inches wide. The red disk beads are 3/4 inches in diameter. The 2 faceted black beads that close the bracelet came straight from Czechoslovakia. And we mean straight from Czechosolvakia because these were in the bead stash that we received as gifts. There were only 2 of them and this is exactly what they were meant for, don't you think?

And, in case, you're wondering, the light-coloured beads are grey. They make a more muted look than white would but the whole bracelet is still very dramatic, we think.

Don't you think they'd be right at home at a dinner at Downton Abbey? (our new fascination) or on board the Titanic?
