Anything similar to a string, thread, cord, etc, I know can be utilized in weaving on a loom, as a warp. In this case, I worked with 'Cupchain'.
Below is a picture of the cupchain I incorporated. This is a Vintage piece, brass metal with an opal stone center. Cupchain comes in many different stones, glass, shapes and metals.
I started out knowing the cupchain was to be a part of this cuff, but I also wanted to include more movement. Therefore, I decided on other bead pairings to create more interest. This included various sized Glass Seed Beads, in an opalescent finish, the Satin line of Delicas and Swarovski Crystals in different shapes and sizes, but matching the cupchain stone.
