Leather in Red

I made this piece intended to be a man’s bracelet.  The contrast of the red paper beads and black leather cord is striking.  Red in some culture is believed to ward off evil spirits.  The color red also symbolizes joy, good luck, courage…….

 This bracelet is finished with wire wrap on both ends, unlike the other leather bracelets from previous post.  The red paper beads is about 8mm in size (Red Paper Bead at Aubrey’s Beads) and has big enough holes to accomodate the leather cord.
