Bracelet of the Day: Duo Bobble Band - Pewter & Turquoise

DUO BOBBLE BAND - PEWTER & TURQUOISE
  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki Duracoat Galvanized "Pewter" (D4222)
  • 3mm pearls "HX17/39" (Beads One - not listed on their website)
  • SuperDuo beads "Opaque Baby Blue Stardust"
Teejay made this bracelet for me for Christmas and it's the one that got me started making this pretty pattern. Teejay adapted this version from Deborah Roberti's "Bobble Bangles" pattern. The funny thing with this one is that the pearls are actually a very pale, rosy, bronze color yet they go quite well with the pewter seed beads. As I often find with beadwork, colors almost seem to blend when you combine them. Quite often colors that I'd never think of putting together combine to form a new color that looks really nice. In this case, the pale bronze beads next to the pewter ones create a very soft, warm silver color.

These are the earrings I'm wearing today:

    1. Hi Rebecca. There is no published pattern. My friend, Teejay, came up with it by adapting Deb Roberti's "Bobble Bangles" pattern.
