Bracelet of the Day: Trestle Bands - Olive & Amethyst

  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki “Dark Bronze” (11-457D)
  • SuperDuo beads “Amethyst Matte”
  • Half Tila beads “Dark Bronze Metallic Matte” (TLH-2006)
  • 3mm fire polished beads “Rosaline Moon Dust”
I had a hard time getting a photo of this bracelet that really shows how pretty it is because the colors are very subtle and delicate. The overall look is a very pale purple with a slightly olive color from the matte bronze Half Tila beads. As you can see, fire polish beads, which are a pale mauve color in this bracelet, work quite well with this pattern and the sparkle gives the bracelet a very different look than the ones I've made with mostly opaque beads. Those have a casual look and this one is a little more elegant.
