Bracelet of the Day: Craving Crystal - Gold & Smoky Topaz

Craving Crystal - Band #4
  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (11-457D)
  • 4mm druks "Champagne" *
  • 4mm fire polished beads "Opaque Gold & Smoky Topaz Luster"
  • 6mm druks "Opaque Gold & Smoky Topaz Luster"
* These were part of a druk assortment from called "Opaque Brown Luster Mix".

My intention was to post one of each of the variations of Deborah Roberti's newest pattern in numerical order. The problem is that, although I've already made four of them, the one that I haven't finished yet is Band #1. So, today I'll start by posting the extra Band #4 that I made with fire polished beads instead of bicones. So, there are no crystals at all in this one and it's a little bit more "grungy" than the others I'll be posting. If you'd like to know how I made my clasp loops for this bracelet, as well as the rest of them that I will be posting, check out my post from April 18th, HERE.

    1. Hi Teejay. None of the variations are very wide. The widest one is just over 1/2-inch wide.
