Bracelet of the Day: Regina Bracelet

  • 11/0 seed beads Toho "Antique Bronze" (223)
  • 8/0 seed beads Toho "Antique Bronze" (223)
  • CzechMates beads "Opaque Light Beige Picasso"
  • SuperDuo beads "Polychrome Indigo Orchid"

I call this bracelet "Regina" because the designer is Regina Couture of Reggie's Creations on Etsy. She doesn't have a pattern for sale but you can buy very pretty ready-to-wear beaded jewelry there including this design in a variety of colorways.


UPDATE: Reggie has a pattern for sale in her Etsy shop now. Click HERE to buy this pattern.


I made this bracelet for my sister-in-law after she saw Reggie's photo of this colorway and she loved it. Reggie has a bracelet like this one for sale HERE


I've got a couple of bracelets to blog about over the weekend but I may not be able to post much next week. I've got to report for jury duty tomorrow and there's no telling if I will end up on a jury or not. I'll let you know on Saturday how that goes.

  1. Dear Linda: Do you have more luck with the button clasps remaining in working order (like the one you used here) than the magnetic ones? I saw your husbands tutorial on repairing the magnetic clasps which is great but all the magnetic clasps that I have used the magnet comes out.

    1. I rarely have magnet clasps come apart and I use them on most of my own bracelets. My sister-in-law requested the "trailer hitch" clasp on this bracelet after she saw the one on Reggie's bracelet. I don't think I've ever used one on any of my own bracelets.

  2. Lovely. Where do you buy your beads for these projects? I've looked for them and am having a hard time finding the colors. Thanks

    1. I buy my beads from a lot of different sources. I'm pretty sure that I got these CzechMates from Aura Crystals. I don't remember where I found the SuperDuos but this color is readily available from lots of bead sites.
