Bracelet of the Day: For Your Eyes Only - Turquoise & Copper


FOR YOUR EYES ONLY
  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Pewter" (4222)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Pewter" (4222)
  • ZoliDuo beads "Turquoise Travertine"
  • IrisDuo beads "Copper"

I now have ZoliDuo beads in a few more colors plus I have enough now to make a proper bracelet like I showed you in THIS post. It won't have a purple motif in the center like my sample bracelet. I made another "For Your Eyes Only" bracelet yesterday that I will show you as soon as I can take photos of it. My plan is to make three or four more colorways with this pattern and then I will need to focus on making some Christmas beadwork and other projects.

You can buy Akke Jonkhof's gorgeous "For Your Eyes Only" bracelet pattern in her Etsy shop, HERE.

  1. How did you do the center differently? I would like to make one like you did but the center looks like you have iris duos in there and she does not?

    1. She definitely uses IrisDuos in hers. The only thing I did differently was to go back around the center and add an 11/0 seed bead between each of the IrisDuos. That covers the thread that would be showing.

  2. I really love this pattern, Linda. The one in today's email with the violet motif is especially gorgeous. I sure do wish I could find more time in my schedule to do my “favorite thing"-beading!
