I ran into a little issue with this particular bracelet. I use Miyuki seed beads most of the time but I really wanted to use this particular Toho bronze color because it's a little more yellow. I've made a few Elinor bracelets now and they usually fit me just right. But, because I used Toho seed beads for this one, it came out much too big and I will have to re-make it sometime. Tomorrow's bracelet of the day also has the same Toho seed beads and you'll see the solution that I came up with to make the bracelet fit me. The purple "Elinor Bracelet" that I posted last Friday, HERE, measures 6 3/4 inches long, tomorrow's bracelet measures just under 6 1/2 inches long and today's bracelet is a full 7 inches long. When I have it on, it falls too far down over my hand.
Once again, for today's and tomorrow's bracelets, I switched around the order of the motifs from what's stated in the pattern.
I'm not usually much of a fan of anything yellow but I love the subtle mustard yellow of this bracelet. I even have a yellow top that this will go with very nicely.
"Elinor" is a free pattern and you can download it either from last Friday's post HERE, or from the list of free beading patterns on the right hand side of my blog.
