Duo Kheops Bracelet & Wave of Love Earrings - Copper & Rose


DUO KHEOPS BRACELET
  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Galvanized Light Golden Bronze" (D4204)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Galvanized Light Golden Bronze" (D4204)
  • Kheops® Par Puca® beads "Opaque Rose Luster"
  • SuperDuo beads "Crystal Bronze Copper"

I blogged about this colorway once before HERE. I was making another "Duo Kheops" bracelet in the same color for my sister-in-law and thought I'd show you the earrings that I made to go with it. I also wanted to show you how dramatically bead dye lots can differ. The bracelet at the top of this post is the original bracelet that I made for myself. In the photo below, I've placed my bracelet next to the one that I just made. The Kheops beads are from the same batch but the SuperDuos look completely different even though the color name and number was the same. The SuperDuos in my bracelet are much darker than in the new bracelet.



WAVE OF LOVE EARRINGS
  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Galvanized Light Golden Bronze" (D4204)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Galvanized Light Golden Bronze" (D4204)
  • SuperDuo beads "Crystal Bronze Copper"

I made a pair of "Wave of Love" earrings to go with the new bracelet. You can download the free pattern HERE from MU at the Centperles Ateliers blog. It's difficult to see the link to the PDF file on that site. Move your cursor under the photo just below where it says "Schéma du motif Wave / Pattern (cliquez dessus)" and the link will become highlighted. Click where it says "wavemotif". That link will take you to the PDF file.


The bracelet pattern is from Marina Beads on Etsy and you can buy it HERE.

Here is a photo of the new bracelet and earrings set:
