Bracelet of the Day: Presa Linda Variation - Terracotta & Chocolate

  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Metallic Chocolate" (461)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Metallic Chocolate" (461)
  • 6mm 2-Hole Cabochons "Chalk White Gold Luster"
  • Pinch beads "Matte Dark Bronze"

After making the "Camille Bracelet Variation" that I blogged about yesterday, I thought I'd see if 2-Hole Cabochons would work with Carole Ohl's free "Presa Linda Bracelet" pattern instead of Silky beads. They work perfectly and I think they make an adorable little bracelet. "Presa Linda" is a variation of Carole Ohl's "Presa Bracelet" pattern, which you can buy HERE. "Presa Linda Bracelet" is a free pattern and you can download it from THIS post. 

When you buy 2-Hole Cabochons, I recommend buying more than you think you'll need. I've been buying them in bags of 12 beads and there is often one or more defective/deformed beads per dozen. 


  1. You certainly keep coming up with some great bracelets - this one looks good enough to eat (must be the chocolate beads)!!

  2. Love this one. Question...the color is Chalk White Gold Luster but on my phone it looks like a dark pink with a gold blush over it. Is that what the actual color looks like or is it my phone settings? Either way I LOVE the way it looks. Thank you for another inspiring bracelet

    1. The color is little more rusty/coppery than pink which is why I called them "terracotta" in my blog title. I had to manually edit the color of those beads in my photos because my camera wanted to make them look too pinkish red.

  3. I love this one. The colours are fabulous.
