I'm wearing another Nouveau SuperDuo Chain Bracelet today but this one looks completely different than the one I wore yesterday. This illustrates how using different kinds and colors of beads can create a totally different look. I just made this one last week and it's one of my new favorites.
Because the druks, I did need to add the extra beads to the motifs again like on yesterday's bracelet. I also embellished the motifs this time by putting an 11/0 "Light Beige Picasso" seed bead in between the SuperDuo "V's". Just like on yesterday's bracelet, I added 8/0 seed beads on the ends for attaching the jump rings and clasp.
The "Chalk White Copper Picasso" SuperDuo beads are another hard to find color. The only current source that I know of is this Etsy shop: WANDERING STAR BEADS. They're similar to "Chalk Lazure Blue" but darker and less blue. The color is also a bit more neutral than "Chalk Lazure Blue" but that color would work just as well with the colors I used in today's bracelet. I actually debated between them.
To go with today's bracelet, I'm wearing some earrings that I made using Vintaj charms that I got for around $3.00 from Beadaholique and put them on some earring wires.
I'm going to post a Paint Shop Pro tutorial as soon as I choose which one to post. After all, this blog isn't just about beading.
