Bracelet of the Day: SuperDuo Rosette - Nebula with Pewter & Copper


SUPERDUO ROSETTE BRACELET
  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Pewter" (4222)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Pewter" (4222)
  • SuperDuo beads "Duet Green Turquoise/Ivory Nebula Matte"
  • 3mm metal beads "Antique Copper" (Hobby Lobby)

I love the combination of pewter and copper and this combo is especially pretty with these matte SuperDuo Duets. The color is called "Green Turquoise/Ivory Nebula Matte" but they're not green or turquoise. They are a sort of grayish blue. The "ivory", which is actually a very pale copper color, is very subtle but it adds to the soft appearance.



I did something a little different this time when I made this bracelet. I wanted it to be a little wider so I replaced the 15/0 seed beads with 11/0 beads and replaced the 11/0 beads called for with 8/0 seed beads. This worked very well with these Miyuki seed beads but I don't think it would work at all with Toho beads.

Below you can see yesterday's bracelet next to today's to see the difference in the size:

  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Pewter" (4222)
  • SuperDuo beads "Duet Green Turquoise/Ivory Nebula Matte"
  • SuperDuo beads "Jet Old Silver"
  • 4mm metal beads "Antique Copper" (Hobby Lobby)


 
I made my tweaked "Art Deco" version of the "Loretta" motif for the matching earrings. In my first post HERE about the SuperDuo Duet beads, I showed you two similar colorways. I didn't end up using either one but instead used pewter SuperDuos in the center of the earrings for more contrast. Below you can see the two samples that I didn't end up using:


  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • SuperDuo beads "Duet Green Turquoise/Ivory Red Luster"
  • SuperDuo beads "Chocolate White Luster"
  • 4mm druks "Turquoise Copper Picasso"



  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Pewter" (4222)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Pewter" (4222)
  • SuperDuo beads "Duet Green Turquoise/Ivory Nebula Matte"
  • SuperDuo beads "Ivory Nebula"
  • 4mm metal beads "Antique Copper" (Hobby Lobby)
