Here is the "Ivy" bracelet in another colorway. I couldn't decide just what color to call this one so I used the color name of the DiamonDuo beads. The overall look is sort of coppery, mauve and pale greenish blue.
I've only seen the pretty berry-colored O beads that I used at Supply Emporium. You can buy them HERE.
I tried something different with some of my photos this time. When I have bracelets that won't stand up on their own, I've been putting them on a champagne glass to take the photos. Sometimes this works pretty well but other times they don't turn out so great. This time I tried putting some colored tissue paper inside the glass to give my camera something to focus on other than the shiny glass. I haven't decided if this helps or not. What do you think? Below is a photo without the tissue paper inside the glass:

I realize that DiamonDuo beads are very hard to come by because the main supplier for them keeps running out of stock. I've compiled a list of places that I'm aware of that carry them. Bear in mind that their supplies might be very limited and you'll have to keep checking those sites if you want to catch them just at the moment that they are back in stock.
