Please note that I have NEVER EVER incorporated sequins in my jewelry pieces so this was definitely a challenge for me. With that said, I absolutely had a blast creating this piece.
I started by cutting out my backing (Lacy's Stiff Stuff) - Please don't judge my messy bead mat - I create best in a bit of disorganization.
Then I bezelled the various cabochons to the backing.
I started adding beads but I was uncertain when or where to incorporate the sequins so I just decided to let the sequins fall where they may (hence the name). There is no rhyme or reason to the design, just a lot of beads and some cabs (and let us not forget the sequins).
I trimmed the whole bracelet in matte black seed beads using the picot technique
Then I added an ultra suede backing in a dark purple
And lastly, I added a hook and eye clasp in black tone

And a view of the middle of the bracelet
It is a perfect, comfortable fit and I love it!
I am thankful to have found this technique of incorporating sequins into my designs and I am excited to use sequins more and more as I continue to design more jewelry pieces.
Please take some time to look at the pieces created by other participants of this blog hop, I am certain you will find the experience fun and inspirational.
