Birthday Bracelet #3 - Isabelle

  • 15/0 seed beads Toho "Nickel Plated" (711)
  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Pewter" (4222)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Pewter" (4222)
  • SuperDuo beads "Jet Silver Pastel aka Jet Silver Paste"
  • 8mm Candy beads "Iris Purple"

Today's gorgeous bracelet has a larger center motif set off by a narrow "chain" on either side of it. I love the silver colorway and the open look of the beadwork on this one. It might be my favorite of the five bracelets from Teejay but it's hard to say because they're all so pretty. You might recognize the chain as being a variation of the motif in Teejay's "Elinor Bracelet" pattern which you can download HERE. As with the other birthday bracelets, I hope to make a pattern for this design sometime.



  1. You are lucky having a friend to make you these beautiful birthday bracelets and thanks for sharing them with us - all lovely in different ways.

  2. Can a 6mm cabachon be used instead of the candy bead ???

    1. I can't say for sure since I've never made one of these bracelets. I think a 6mm cabochon would likely be a little to small though and you'd probably have to make adjustments to accommodate the smaller bead.

  3. Great work again from Teejay.
    This chain is very delicate also with bezeled cabuchons and rivoli stones!
