Bermuda Triangle Bracelet

Continuing my obsession with peyote triangles - I wanted to see if I could tesselate them into a bracelet.
I thought that since they are equilateral triangles they would fit together quite nicely.
I also wanted to play with making donut triangles. So I got out my new Matsuno size 11 beads and started.

The triangles fitted together well!

But how to finish the ends?
I added on beads in a decreasing peyote stitch to try and make the ends straight, so that I could sew a clasp on.

I used a button and loop closure - a favorite way to finish off beaded bracelets.

It turned out great!
It's light and drapes really well on your wrist.

It did turn out great. I'm betting that photo doesn't do it justice. :-) It must take much patience to create this type of jewelry--I admire your choice of colors here as well. ~tina
