This is a bracelet that I had to finish making before starting on my big beading project. Although the purple color is very subtle in these photos, I made this to go with the pair of Gypsy Earrings below, which I blogged about recently. I debated about the thread color to use to make this bracelet. I tried black but it showed very badly through the transparent fire polished beads. I didn't bother to try white thread because I knew that it would look horrible between the bronze seed beads. I settled on some dark khaki Nymo D thread and it worked very well. It doesn't show through the crystal beads and it's just dark enough to not be very noticeable between the seed beads.
