Blue and white porcelain inspired me to try these colours in bead embroidery and a bracelet seemed like the right amount of work to do.
Materials all gathered: glass seed beads, a ribbon for the bracelet base, thread and an embroidery needle.
Made the frame first, starting with the darkest blue beads. Not sure if I like it this way...
Finished the first flower! The frame looks all right now, I think. The overall image reminds me more of those Mediterranean blue and white tile mosaics than porcelain, actually.
When finished embroidering, double folded the ribbon and sewed by hand all around the edges. The hardest part is making a clasp. Out of several options coming to my mind, I decided to sew some double rings to the back side where I could attach jump rings, pieces of extension chain and a toggle clasp.
