Bronze Peyote with Stripe

Peyote remains one of my favorite stitches. This is a bracelet I created using bronze 8/0s, with a thin, off-center stripe of matte cobalt blue 8/0s:

I've been getting very lucky lately with finding matching buttons in my super-secret button stash, and I scored again for this bracelet:
I added a small picot border around the bracelet with 15/0s.

I love using buttons for bracelet closures, because there's such a fun choice of buttons right now, and they are so easy and quick to attach (as opposed to stitching a clasp from scrap!) Easy to operate, too!

What kind of closures do you prefer on your bracelets?

Love the vibe of this...with the right beads and stitch, simple is the way to go and this is great & the button matches perfectly! I mostly use toggles(beadwoven or manufactured), BUT recently inherited quite a stash of buttons. And now I seem to be using them all the time. I am not good at making my own clasps out of wire (though i keep practicing) and hate buying them, so now that I have this stash, I am going to deplete it!
