Bracelet of the Day: Duo Kheops - Ivory & Gold

  • 11/0 seed beads Toho "Metallic Olivine Bronze Iris" (513)
  • 8/0 seed beads Toho "Metallic Olivine Bronze Iris" (513)
  • Kheops® Par Puca® beads "Full Dorado"
  • SuperDuo beads "Pastel Light Cream (25110)"

I used the same beads in this bracelet as the blue one that I blogged about a few days ago, HERE. I just used ivory SuperDuos with a pearl finish instead of blue SuperDuos. I think this will go nicely with a lot of outfits because of the neutral colors.

I probably should make some earrings to go with this bracelet when I have a chance and I have an idea for the perfect earrings. I will make my variation of Beth Clark's "Beth Duo Earrings" with the same pearl ivory SuperDuos and put some Crystal Amber Gold Full SuperDuos in the center. I will post the set once I've made the earrings. By the way, Beth is now offering all of her beading patterns for free with an optional donation on her blog, HERE.

You can buy this bracelet pattern from Marina Beads on Etsy HERE



  1. This is so pretty!! Just need to find the Tohos 513 in the 11/0's and 8/0'!!

    1. Hi Michelle. You can buy all of the sizes from Charlene's Beads. They're on THIS page about halfway down. She calls them "Metallic Olivine Bronze Iris" (460K) but they're actually Toho's #513.

    2. I love Charlenes Beads. She is awesome, and she really goes out of her way to help. I love the fact that she carries many sizes in one color too. In many bead sites its impossible to find 15/0, 11/0, and 8/0 beads in the same colors! Thank you for finding them for me on her site, too. I don't know how I missed them.

    3. Yes, Charlene is awesome. I buy most of my metallic seed beads from her. If you like Silky beads, she's got a nice selection for probably the best price I've seen anywhere. Every color is just $2.50 for 40 of them. I've seen some of those same colors selling for around $7.00 elsewhere.
