Free Beading Pattern - Ivy Bracelet



 IVY BRACELET
  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • DiamonDuo beads "Jet Silver Picasso"
  • SuperDuo beads "Chalk Copper Picasso"
  • O-Beads "Gold Matte"

This is the first in a series of patterns based on the eight beautiful bracelets that Teejay sent me for my birthday earlier this month. Click HERE to read my original post about this bracelet. Teejay created the wonderful diagrams for this pattern so it should be easy to follow.

You probably won't find the SuperDuo color that I used anywhere and the Etsy shop where I bought them no longer has them. "Chalk Lazure Blue" or "Opaque Green Luster" would be good substitutes. The "silver" in the black DiamonDuo beads is really a sage green which is nearly the same color as the SuperDuos that I used.


UPDATE: I just discovered that Aura Crystals has "Opaque Green Copper Luster" SuperDuos and that is the same color as the "Chalk Copper Picasso" beads that I used. You can buy them HERE.

  4. I appreciate someone who does the homework about the bead colors they use in their designs. Not everybody envisions a beaded piece in their own colors when they see it. Color is a big thing for me, if I like something, I usually want to make it in the colors I see it in. Nothing is more frustrating than searching the world over for a particular bead based on just a picture! Thank you for sharing your gifts with me and inspiring me to continue on my own beading adventure.

    1. I keep track of the beads that I used in my projects in case I ever want to make the same thing again. Since I already have that info, I might as well share it here. I sometimes use beads that have been discontinued or are hard to find though. If I know of sources for those beads, I try to remember to post links to them.

    1. I just checked the link and it's working fine. There might be a slight delay before the download dialog box pops up so wait a few seconds for it. Or, you can right-click on the link and choose "Save link as...". It will ask where you want to put it and then it will save it to your computer.

  8. Can't get to the link to download and make a donation. I'm on a cell phone. Would that make a difference?

    1. I don't have a cell phone so I can't say if that's the cause. I just checked the link and the download is working. If you still can't get it to download on your phone you might have better luck from your computer.

    2. Another option is to send me an email using the form on the right and I will email the link to you. For some reason people who have trouble downloading patterns from my blog seem to be able to download them from a link in an email even though it's the same link.
