Free Beading Pattern - Tammy Bracelet



TAMMY BRACELET
  • 15/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Pewter" (4222)
  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Pewter" (4222)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Pewter" (4222)
  • DiamonDuo beads "Antique Chrome"
  • DiamonDuo beads "Pastel Bordeaux"

This simple little bracelet calls for just two kinds of beads; DiamonDuos and seed beads. It also works well with both Miyuki and Toho seed beads. I will be posting three more colorways next week. In the meantime, here are two colorway samples that I didn't end up making into bracelets:



TOP LEFT SAMPLE:

  • 15/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • DiamonDuo beads "Chalk Light Rose"
  • DiamonDuo beads "Pastel Bordeaux"

BOTTOM RIGHT SAMPLE:

  • 15/0 seed beads Miyuki "Metallic Chocolate" (461)
  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Metallic Chocolate" (461)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Metallic Chocolate" (461)
  • DiamonDuo beads "Chocolate Bronze"
  • DiamonDuo beads "Chalk Lumi Blue"

    1. Thanks, Val. As I mentioned, I've got three more colorways that I will blog about next week. It's a holiday weekend over here so I'm taking a couple of days off from blogging.

  2. Hi Linda, This is a lovely bracelet and do like the colors you used as well. I have actually started beading and finishing up Deborah Roberti's Starflower Bracelet, which has turned out beautifully, used Lt. Blue Diamonduos, silver seed beads and 3mm light blue beads. Hope that you and your family have a wonderful 4th of July.

  6. Oh my! This is a delightful pattern. It's not too wide, not too narrow, and is just perfect. It works up fairly quickly, so it's a great project to do in an evening. (I've already made two and working on a third. On this last one, I substituted 2mm firepolish for the 8/0 because it is a gift for someone who just loves a bit of sparkle.) Thank you for this wonderful pattern.

    1. Thanks for your nice comments, Karey. Did you replace all of the 8/0 beads with 2mm fire polished beads or only the ones between the motifs?

    2. I replaced all of the 8/0 beads except for the ends where the jump rings are attached. They are a little smaller, but it's turning out well. Going to try to use just a single component to make matching earrings. (I'm still new to this, but it's fun to experiment. It's very addicting.)

    3. I've made a note to try your idea. I've got quite a few colors of 2mm fire polished beads so hopefully some of them will go well with the DiamonDuos that I've got.

  7. I have been looking for the Antique Chrome beads, can you tell me where you got them.

  8. I love all your designs and it is a problem trying to decide which one to do next. I have some Diamonduos on order and as soon as I get them, I will dig in! Thanks so much for the patterns and keep 'em coming!
