Forever Twilight Bracelet

My latest creation:

Forever Twilight

Ben came up with the name ages ago and wanted me to make something to suit it. It took me some time to think of something deserving of the name but finally here it is.

The bracelet has been made with a crocheted wire frame, which was then 'embroidered' tatting style with a mix of dark blue Habu silk covered steel and (also from Habu) a kind of lurex which in fact is more like thread-thin video tape. The effect is much nicer than lurex as you get a far more subtle shimmer and glimmer.

In the next step I added teeny 4-layer organza flowers in black and lilac and Magatama drops in matte grey, pale blue and glossy lustred grey.

The final step was a gorgeous lilac organza ribbon threaded through the ends of the bracelet.

Above is one of the little silk organza flowers.

The bracelet is fully adjustable and would suit a medium to large wrist. It's too wide for a small wrist.

I think I will be making variations along this theme as I really like the look and feel of the bracelet. It is unusual and organic, soft but firm to wear and has interesting details. Something that will work as well with a little black dress as with a pair of jeans.


  1. I did try to leave a comment before - must have got swallowed! This bracelet is lovely, I really like the fuzziness combined with the delicate flowers. Great name for it too!

  2. Like the bracelet, and a great name Ben!

  3. I think this crochet pattern would make an interesting gothic choker style necklace as well
