A few more Camille Bracelet Variation samples

You can read my previous posts about my adaptation of Puca's "Camille Bracelet" design HERE, HERE and HERE. I'm gradually accumulating a nice assortment of Kheops colors as you can see in my samples below. They don't come in many colors that appeal to me so I've been buying them here and there as I find ones that I like. I've bought most of my Kheops from Red Panda but I've also bought them from Artbeads and Aria Design Studio.

Here are five new color combinations to inspire you to play with some Kheops beads:

  • 15/0 seed beads Toho "Antique Silver-Nickel" (711)

I've got several beading projects ready to blog about but I can't post about them until after Christmas because they are things that I made for gifts. So, unless I find some free time in the next few days to do some beading, take photos and type some articles, I might not won't post again until after Christmas. 

Merry Christmas everyone!



  1. I am sure the recipients will not mind you posting..I am sure they will be busy beading and doing other hobby things .. I just think it a shame to spoil the fun for so many because of so few.

    1. You'll just have to be patient. It will give you something to look forward to after Christmas.

  2. Awwwwwww that was my best shot... I promise not to look if you would I know its mine or not..... T x. Did you know that was me... I bet you did ...

    1. I thought it sounded just like you but the capital letters made me wonder, LOL.
