Bracelet of the Day: Cindy Bracelet - Silver & Turquoise

  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Galvanized Pale Mink" (D4221)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Galvanized Pale Mink" (D4221)
  • Silky beads "Opaque Green Turquoise"
  • 4mm druks "Turquoise"

I've blogged about this bracelet design ten times before. You can read my first post about it HERE and do a search of my blog for "Cindy Bracelet" to find the others. I adapted this bracelet from the "Petals & Pearls Bracelet" pattern, which you can buy HERE on Etsy. You can read the details in my first post. It's quick and easy to make so I've made quite a few of these in a variety of colors.

This particular bracelet and earring set was a Christmas present for my sister, Cindy, and I actually did name my version of the bracelet after her. It just looked like the kind of design that she would like and you've probably noticed that I have a tendency to name my bracelets after women. I got very lucky with these turquoise beads because the Silky and druk dye lots were identical. I have other beads that are called the same color name but the color is too different for them to be used together.

The earrings were made with my free "Silky Deco Earrings" pattern which you can download HERE.



  1. I just love the turquoise with silver, I'm thinking maybe turquoise with orange, I love that combination! Thanks for sharing. Love ya' Patricia B

  2. Did toy crate a pattern for the bracelet?
