Bracelet of the Day: Ivy Bracelet Variation - Rose Gold



IVY BRACELET VARIATION
  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Metallic Chocolate" (461)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Metallic Chocolate" (461)
  • 6mm 2-hole cabochons "Jet Capri Rose Full"
  • SuperDuo beads "Opaque Rose Gold Topaz Luster"
  • O-Beads "Jet Bronze" (about 2.75 grams)

This one is another "Clover" version of the "Ivy Bracelet" design. Instead of DiamonDuo beads, it has 2-hole cabochons. That's the only change so you can follow the Ivy pattern as written and just switch out the DiamonDuos with cabochons. Download the free pattern from THIS post.

If you make our "Ivy" and "Bluebell" bracelet patterns you will find that you'll be going through quite a few O-Beads. They come in a lot of pretty colors but it's not easy to find any one bead site that has the best ones or at least the ones that I like. Claire at Supply Emporium on Etsy has some of my favorite colors that can be hard to find elsewhere. When you go to her Etsy shop, do a search for "Czech O-Beads". Readers of my blog can get 15% off any order over $30 by using the coupon code "15BLOG". Claire has loads of other gorgeous beads to tempt you as well.


UPDATE: I've added a notation to the supply list showing approximately how many grams of O-Beads you'll need to make the bracelet.
