Bracelet of the Day: Cindy Bracelet - Jet with Smoky Vitrail

  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Galvanized Pewter" (D4222)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Galvanized Pewter" (D4222)
  • 4mm druks "Matte Smoky Topaz AB Vitrail"
  • Silky beads "Jet"

I've been stepping outside my color comfort zone lately by trying some beads with unusual finishes on them such as these "Matte Smoky Topaz AB Vitrail" druks. They can be tricky to match with other bead colors but I've been able to come up with some pleasing color combinations with some of them. Here's a photo of the druks so you can see them a little better:

They're a dark matte gray on one side and then there's this cool sort of iridescent pinkish green stuff on the other side. I made sure that I rotated all of the druks so that the interesting side was showing from the front. Whether they look green or pink depends on how the light hits them. The "Apollo Gold" druks that I used in Sunday's bracelet are along the same lines as are the "Matte Apollo Milky Pink" druks in Monday's bracelet.
