Bracelet of the Day: Fina Bracelet - Silver & Hematite

  • 11/0 seed beads "Metallic Hematite" (Czech)
  • 8/0 seed beads Toho "Metallic Hematite" (81)
  • 8/0 seed beads Toho "Hybrid Moon Dust" (Y369)
  • Arcos® par Puca® beads "Silver Aluminum"
  • Minos® par Puca® beads "Silver Aluminum"

Once again, I used Ella's lovely "Fina Bracelet" pattern which you can buy HERE. I was determined to find a way to use these bright silver Arcos and Minos beads with this pattern. None of my silver seed beads go well with this silver and that would have been way too much silver anyway. These hematite seed beads were just the thing. They outline the details of the pattern and go well with the cool silver color. I think that the silvery purple accent beads add just the right touch of color too. Below are some sites where you can find the Toho hybrid beads:

You can get the Arcos and Minos beads at QueenCityBead on Etsy and also at Red Panda.

    1. Marge has figured out how to make her own bead board, Teejay. It's one of those that has soft edges to keep the beads from rolling on the floor.
