For information about where this pattern came from, read THIS post. This is the second in a series of nine "Cindy" bracelets that I'll be posting over the next week or so as I make them. I ended up making a different clasp loop for this one to get the length right. I decided that a longer loop would look nicer than extra jump rings. I'm finding more and more opportunities to use the "Montana Gold Luster" seed beads. It's such a pretty color. It seems to be a combination of silver, copper and gold all at once somehow. They're blue beads but I don't think they'd look right in a blue bracelet. I guess I won't know until I try though.
I made three more "Cindy" bracelets last night and I hope to take the photos later today.
