This is a new design. I call this one Green Apple Ripple Cuff. The base is Herringbone stitch with 2 different size beads, and the sides are a peyote starting with size 8's and then a few rows of 2 drop with 11's to make the ripple. It's pretty fun to do. I will probably make a couple more in the near future.

Green Apple Ripple Cuff Bracelet
This is the first Ripple bracelet I made. It now belongs to my friend, because in the learning/design curve it came out quite a bit smaller in length than I wanted. It crinkles up after you get most of the edges on with the peyote stitch, so it comes out shorter than you want it. I made a couple of changes between the first one one (the top photo) and the 2nd Apple green one, like: Number of herringbone rows, amount of edging, shape of size 11 beads. I think I like the first one better, what's your opinion, please, which cuff do you like better?
