Bracelet of the Day: Bridges Bracelet - Turquoise Amber Picasso

  • 11/0 seed beads Toho "Metallic Bronze Antique Gold" (225)
  • 8/0 seed beads Toho "Metallic Bronze Antique Gold" (225)
  • Silky beads "Turquoise Amber Picasso" (Supply Emporium)
  • 3mm fire polished beads "Turquoise Amber Picasso" (Supply Emporium)
  • SuperDuo beads "Blue Green Stone aka Chalk Lumi Green aka Chalk Lazure Blue" (Supply Emporium)

My friend, Claire, has finally finished the lovely bracelet pattern that I told you about in THIS post. The pattern is for sale in her Etsy shop HERE. She also has a bead pack that you can buy that contains all of the beads and supplies needed to make the bracelet in the photo on the pattern. The pattern is sold separately and is not included in the bead pack. The pattern is super easy to make and it includes instructions for adding a button clasp. I didn't have a suitable button so I put a magnetic clasp on mine.

I showed you the sample above in my previous post about Claire's pattern. I used most of the same beads to make today's bracelet but I changed the seed beads and only used SuperDuos in one color instead of two. Since Claire's pattern works best with Toho seed beads, I decided to use one of my favorite Toho metallic colors which is Metallic Bronze Antique Gold. Supply Emporium has these 11/0 seed beads HERE and in 8/0 HERE. I had used Miyuki dark bronze beads in the sample and it came out a little warped because the seed beads were too small.
