- 15/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457D)
- 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457D)
- Twin beads "Crystal Gold Luster"
- 4mm druks "Bronze"
This morning I decided that these might be nice in all bronze beads so I made myself a pair. I sometimes need a pair of all "metal" earrings when I'm wearing a bracelet that I don't have matching earrings for. These will go with pretty much any bracelet that has "Dark Bronze" seed beads in it. For some reason I had a little more trouble than usual getting through some tight spots at the end while weaving in the threads. I suspect that the bronze druks have slightly smaller holes than colored druks because of the thicker metallic coating on them.
Don't confuse the "Bronze" druks and SuperDuo beads with the color called "Dark Bronze" in those two types of beads even though the matching seed beads are called that called "Dark Bronze". The druks and SuperDuos in "Dark Bronze" are actually copper.
