This piece is based on the Carole Horn Neptune's Garden bracelet from the December 2011 Bead & Button. I used the size 8/0's listed in the magazine for the diagonal peyote base, rolled the edges, added three Czech floral buttons for the closure, and then went all Miriam Haskell adding beaded flowers and leaves until I had a corsage bracelet. I think this piece went from being Neptune's Garden to Miriam's Garden.
The 8/0 peyote base is very supple even though I stitched it with 8 lb. Fireline. It was easy to add the embellishments to the base because of the large 8/0 holes. I tried to get a good balance between matte and shiny beads. I even found a spot to add a pearl.
