Bracelet of the Day: Duo Bobble Band - Lavender & Silver

DUO BOBBLE BAND
  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Pale Mink" (D4221)
  • SuperDuo beads "Opaque Violet White Luster"
  • 4mm rondelles "Vitral Purple" (#C47 - Beads One


 This bracelet and earring set was another gift for my friend's birthday. I used my favorite "Duo Bobble Band" pattern for her bracelet and the earrings were something that I came up with based on some photos that I saw on Pinterest. The problem with Pinterest is that sometimes it's impossible to track down where something originated because it's been re-pinned so many times. I have no idea where these came from or if there's a pattern available but it was simple enough to turn the bracelet motif into earrings. These are the photos that I found on Pinterest:


I'm pretty sure that they were both from the same site. Please post in the comments if you know where they came from. I really liked the colors they used so I used beads that I had on hand to come up with a similar color scheme. I call these my "Lucy Earrings":
LUCY EARRINGS
  • 15/0 seed beads "Grayish Purple Hematite" (no info available)
  • SuperDuo beads "Pearl Luster" (Nirvana)
  • SuperDuo beads "Opaque Violet White Luster"
  • 4mm bicones "Purple AB" (#C12 AB - Beads One)


UPDATE: As Maneki posted below in the comments, the bracelet and earrings in the photos above are from THIS site. They used Twin beads, rather than SuperDuo beads, for a slightly different look.

    1. Yes, they do. Thanks for the link. I like the double ones too and I don't think I've seen that video before.

  2. The pics you asked about are from The Bead Shop Nottingham: http://www.mailorder-beads.co.uk/shop/twin-bead-swarovski-collar-thu-10-10-2013-2pm-5pm.html#axzz35HOEqQOW There are many who have done similar things (me included), but that's the place where you can find the photos you found.

    1. Thanks for the link, Maneki. I never would have found them there. I see that they use Twin beads rather than SuperDuos. I've got some Twin beads that I've never used so maybe I'll try them out with this pattern.
