Bracelet of the Day: Duo Bobble - Montana Blue

  • 11/0 seed beads Toho "Nickel Plated" (711)
  • 8/0 seed beads Toho "Nickel Plated" (711)
  • SuperDuo beads "Pastel Montana Blue"
  • 4mm rondelles "Montana Blue" (Chinese)

I've blogged about this design many times. It's Teejay's adaptation of Deborah Roberti's "Bobble Bangles" pattern, which you can buy HERE. Teejay's version replaces the large center beads with SuperDuo beads. I plan to post this version as a free pattern when I have a chance to create the diagrams, probably sometime early next year. 

UPDATE 1/24/18: A free pattern is now available for this bracelet and the new name for this pattern is "Lizbeth Band". Visit THIS post to download the free pattern.
I made this particular bracelet for myself to go with a pair of "Alessia's Fan Earrings". I blogged about the earrings HERE and you can watch the free YouTube video tutorial HERE. I also made a matching "Bobble Bangle" bracelet to go with the earrings but I really wanted a bracelet that has blue SuperDuos in it too. Back when I made the first bracelet, I didn't have enough of the blue SuperDuos on hand. I blogged about the crystal blue bracelet HERE. I haven't decided yet if I will take the first bracelet apart or just keep them both. Below is a photo showing both bracelets along with the earrings.



  1. I love the way you displayed the bracelet on a clear glass! Brilliant!!!! As always, thanks so much for sharing your beautiful jewelry and extremely creative ideas.

    1. I've started doing that when I take photos of bracelets that won't stand up on their own.

  2. Beautiful bracelet! I'm looking forward to the pattern.
