Even More Rizos!

Kumihimo Bracelet made with Red Rizos

To make this bracelet I used 0.2mm copper wire with a red coating. I used two strands together and found that the beads could be threaded on very easily and the braid worked up beautifully.  Once the braid was complete I was able to tighten it by twisting it. This needs to be done with care because wire will stiffen and break if it is over worked. I finished it off with some wide hole beads, topped with a 6mm bead and used wire to make the clasp.

The great range of colours available in Rizo beads makes a bracelet like this so effective. I used shiny and matte finishes to add texture and interest.
