Elaborate beaded jewelry take ages to complete. So making just a bracelet will probably increase the chances a piece could be completed this decade! First up is this video tutorial which shows how Sherry Serafini creates a beaded cuff.
I also like the simple bead embroidered cuff bracelet tutorial from Beading Daily. It sure cuts down on the work as the design features a beaded bezel around a cabochon which is on a plain leather covered bracelet blank. Make sure you click through to see how the cabochon is finished. If you are new to peyote bezels, try this video tutorial or check this past post for tutorial links.
If you can't easily get hold of bracelet blanks, check out Jenni of I SPY DIY's brilliant use of appropriately sized metal cookie cutters! She just altered them for bracelets or anklets but beaders can use them as blanks.
