MOON RING BRACELET
- 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
- 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
- 3mm fire polished beads "Opaque Gold & Smoky Topaz Luster"
- 4mm Swarovski bicones "Crystal Purple Haze"
This should be the last "Moon Ring" that I will blog about for a while. I had exactly enough of these bicones to make this bracelet. That makes me happy because I really don't like not having enough Swarovski crystals left over to make anything because they're so expensive. I got these from Aura Crystals and there's a link to them in the bead list above.

If you haven't tried this pattern yet, I highly recommend it. It looks intricate but it's a very quick bracelet to make and the instructions are super easy to follow. I timed myself while making this bracelet. I took my time and didn't rush. From start to finish, it took me about 50 minutes to complete it. I even did some extra reinforcing that isn't mentioned in the pattern. After I made each motif, I wove back around the perimeter once again before adding the next motif. Oh, and that 50 minutes included two screw-ups where I had to undo some stitching and re-thread my needle. In less than an hour, I still had time to take the clasp back off and add a couple more jump rings and put away my beading supplies for the night.
