Bracelet of the Day: Diamond Chain with Montees
DIAMOND CHAIN WITH MONTEES
15/0 seed beads Miyuki "Bronze" (15-457)
11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Bronze" (11-457)
8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Bronze" (8-457)
3.9mm "Blue" Montees
4mm bicones "Jet #C04" (Beads One - color no longer available)
I had a heck of a time getting decent photo of this bracelet because black beads are very difficult to photograph. Hopefully you can tell how pretty it is. As I mentioned in my other post, I didn't follow any particular pattern. This is based on the "Diamond Chain Bracelet" with an extra little motif in between the bicone diamonds. The in-between motifs are smaller diamonds made of four 11/0 seed beads and I stitched the montees on top of them at the end. I embellished those motifs with little 15/0 picots. I added an 8/0 seed bead at each end of the bracelet so that I could attach my clasp with jump rings.
