Bracelet of the Day: Coin Bands - Jet Bronze

  • CzechMates "Jet Bronze Picasso"  
  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Metallic Chocolate" (11-461)
  • 8/0 seed beads "Metallic Chocolate" (no info available)

This bracelet has been in my "to do" pile for ages and I finally had a chance to make it a few days ago. I seem to recall that this was one of the first things that I tried with CzechMates tile beads and I instantly fell in love with this pattern in these colors. I did have to change the way the clasp is attached because adding another motif would have made the bracelet much too long for me. I added an 8/0 seed bead on either end and attached the clasp with jump rings that go through the beads. I think that one jump ring on each side might have been enough but I couldn't close the jump ring once the clasp was on it. There just wasn't room for the bead and the clasp on that little jump ring so I had to add an extra ring to each end. I could have used a larger jump ring but the length would have come out pretty much the same either way and the smaller ones suit the bracelet better.
