This band is used in Saraguro collars to support the design suspended below. However, it makes a pretty piece of beadwork all on its own, and is delightfully flexible and drapes well. The constructon method is almost always a surprise to non-Saraguro beaders. Materials list, text notes, and additional small blank pattern included, but not information on the multitude of ways to make a closure or clasp attachment.
Half my income from the sale of this pattern will be shared amongst the Saraguro beading cooperatives.
