Bracelet of the Day: Flutter - Rose & Bronze

  • 15/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • SuperDuo beads "Crystal Gold Luster"
  • 4mm fire polished beads "Red Umber"
  • 4mm fire polished beads "Transparent Matte Smoky Topaz Gold Luster"
  • 4mm Czech bicones "French Rose Celsian"

I tried one more "Flutter Bracelet" colorway and this one is quite different than the colors that I typically use. I hope that I've got something to wear this bracelet with because I love it. The fire polished beads are a lovely dark rose color. They're not quite red and not quite pink. As far as I can determine, the color is called "Red Umber" and they're from Nirvana Beads, which is a wholesale bead distributor. I bought them in a local shop where they don't put any names on their fire polished beads. I do know that one of their distributors is Nirvana Beads and I found some that look like this on their website HERE. They look a bit more red in their photo but I still think they're the same ones. I suggest doing a search on Etsy for this color because that's where you're most likely to find beads that come from Nirvana. Don't confuse this color with regular "Umber", which is more of a rusty brown color. These are definitely in the rose/pink family. In fact, Nirvana lists them as being in the "Marsala Palette".

These Czech "French Rose Celsian" bicones are one of my favorite bicone colors. The only place that I know of to buy them is on Red Panda, HERE. Unfortunately, Betsy indicates that they are discontinued. She still has quite a few of them in stock at the moment though. I did a Google search and Robin's Beads in the UK also has them HERE.

Although there is no mention of rose or pink in the name of the other fire polished beads that I used, they are definitely a pinkish rose color. I've discovered that they also go by the name "Matte Luster Transparent Rosaline". Red Panda has them HERE and Aura Crystals has them HERE.

The "Flutter Bracelet" pattern is from Around the Beading Table and you can buy it HERE.
