Bracelet of the Day: Paloma's Path - Arctic Blue & Silver

  • 15/0 seed beads Miyuki/Czech "Crystal Full Labrador" (27000)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki/Czech "Crystal Full Labrador" (27000)
  • SuperDuo beads "Satin Metallic Arctic Blue"
  • 3mm druks "Silver"

While searching the internet for ZoliDuo ideas, I came across this pretty bracelet at BumblebeadCrafts on Etsy. Although I like the ZoliDuo version very much, I especially love the SuperDuo version. It only calls for three kinds of basic beads and I have so many more SuperDuo colors in my stash than ZoliDuos. It's a little hard to tell this from the photos online but this is a very delicate, narro bracelet because it's made with 15/0 seed beads. If you have trouble working with such tiny beads, this isn't the pattern for you. Otherwise, it's not difficult to make and it's a very comfortable bracelet to wear.

You can buy this pattern HERE. I got these silver 15/0 seed beads HERE at Red Panda. They are currently out of them in 8/0 but I only used two of them to attach my clasp and the pattern doesn't call for them.



  1. These bracelets are so beautiful!

  2. You are truely talented, I love all of your work!

  3. Linda you work continues to amaze me! Your so talented. Thank you for sharing what you do!

  4. This bracelet would look awesome with crystal bicones within the spaces. I love all your work, BTW. Do you do any Ava bead projects? I have a whole bunch of them that were kind of costly but I don't want them going to waste.

  5. This bracelet is gorgeous! I'll try to make it with dark blue SuperDuos and Light Pewter seed beads. Do you remember which thread you used?

    1. Thanks. I used 6lb. Fireline because of all the 15/0 seed beads. I wanted to be able to reinforce it well and still be able to get my needle through the beads.
