Here is one more Silky Stacker made with Deborah Roberti's free pattern. You can download the PDF file HERE. I also made a pair of matching earrings using my free Silky Deco Earrings pattern, which you can download HERE.
The pale, coppery bronze seed beads that I used are kind of unusual. I first saw them in a free seed bead mix sample that I received with an order from Artbeads.com. I really liked that color so I asked them what they were so that I could buy some. They wouldn't tell me but I accidentally got a clue one day when I held them up to a bright light. I discovered that they're actually transparent blue (Montana) beads with a bronze luster coating on them. They really look metallic in normal light. I managed to track down some 8/0 and 11/0 beads in that color but I still need to find them in 15/0. I got the 8/0's from Artbeads and the 11/0's from Aura Crystals. Charlene's Beads also has them in 11/0 on THIS page. She calls them "Bronze Mint - 11-319O" with a note that they're actually Toho #204.
