My friend Claire, from SupplyEmporium, sent me a photo of her "Quick SuperDuo Bracelet" and I decided that it looked just like a fruity dessert with berries and chocolate chip ice cream or perhaps berries and toasted marshmallows. Take a look at her photo below and and you'll see what I mean:
I had most of the beads that Claire used and she sent me the ones that I didn't have or was short on so that I could give this combination a try. You can buy all of the beads that Claire and I used at her SupplyEmporium shop on Etsy. The links are in the supply list above. Don't forget that readers of my blog can get 15% off any order over $30 using the coupon code: 15BLOG.
You can get the free bracelet tutorial from the Beading Daily site HERE. If you try that tutorial, there is a typo in Step 5 that you should know about. The sentence that reads "Repeat until you have a total of 4A and 3B." should say "...4A and 3D". Note the D instead of a B. The instructions are also a little vague in the next part of that step. They just say to "Pass through all beads again...". What they don't tell you is that you should go through the 15/0 seed bead (B), druk (D) and 15/0 seed bead (B) that are on the end of the previous motif. It's important to go back around through all three of those beads to get the correct result. Those three beads are shared by two motifs.
