- 11/0 seed beads Toho "Metallic Olive Brown" (11-457H)
- SuperDuo beads "Opaque Olive Copper Picasso"
- 6mm round "Crazy Moss Agate" stone beads
- 4mm corrugated brass beads (from Hobby Lobby)
I didn't change anything about the pattern, which is unusual for me. Well, I must admit that I went ahead and attached half of the clasp right away after making the first motif. That way I only had to leave a long enough tail to weave in later.
Using large stone beads made for a heavy bracelet but it has a nice feel to it. I also got lucky that I didn't have to do anything special to make it fit me. Nine motifs were just right for my size and I kept the clasp loops just as Deb's pattern said to make them.
This pattern is fun to make and the method is a little unusual, or at least I've never made anything quite like it before.
