DUO BOBBLE BAND
- 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (11-457D)
- 4mm rondelles "Celery AB" (Chinavoski)
- SuperDuo beads "Luster Gold"
Because my Dad was paying me to make the black and gold bracelet for Penny, I had to calculate the cost of the materials I used to make it. While I was at it, just out of curiosity, I also figured out the cost to make the green one. The black and gold "India" bracelet used about $7.00 worth of materials and the green one about $2.80. Of course my Dad paid me more than that plus the cost of the postage to mail it to Michigan.
By the way, I don't really know the color name for the rondelles since they don't come named or numbered where I bought them. It was a toss-up between "Spring Green" and "Celery". I bought those at Beadohlique from a bin where you have to dig through a pile of Chinese crystals that they call "Chinavoski". They have a large variety of rondelles, rounds and bicones in all sorts of pretty colors. I've learned though not to expect to find the same colors again the next time I go there. This week they're having a "Make your own Sale" as their weekly special. You choose a category of beads and get 20% anything that you buy from that category. I may go by there later today and see if they've got any 3mm Chinavoski bicones and get them 20% off. I found a few pretty colors last time I was there but I really had to hunt for that size.
