Embellished Beaded Bracelets

I had a great time creating these bracelets. The base stitch is peyote and then I just started looping through each base bead and stringing a piece of shell in the middle of the loop.
I used a metal button for the closure. I use Silimide beading thread instead of the small spool of Nymo. I have used it for over ten years and have never had a problem (knock wood). Nymo splits and frays too much for me.
This bracelet ended up with a really nice curve to it and is extremely comfortable. I liked it so much, I made another in black and white. I added fringe to the loop closure and used a black and white plastic button instead of metal.
Below are a few others I have had fun making.
