Bracelet of the Day: Bubble Bands - Chalk Lumi Green

  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • 8mm 2-hole Candy beads "Chalk Lumi Green"
  • 3mm druks "Bronze"
  • 4mm Czech bicones "Aquamarine Celsian"

Read yesterday's post HERE about how I tweaked this pattern a little. I made this bracelet for myself but it came out a little too long. I love it so I will re-make it and somehow tweak the motifs on the ends to shorten it.

You'll find these 8mm Candy beads at Queen City Bead on Etsy HERE. You can buy the "Bubble Bands" pattern at Around the Beading Table HERE. As far as I know, these Czech bicones are only available from Red Panda HERE.


I almost missed it. I was looking through my beading folder on my computer yesterday and found a note that said that I started beading in August of 2012. It's been a fun four years and I've gotten to know a lot of very nice beaders from around the world.



  1. Congrats, Linda! It’s amazing how much you were able to achieve in beading in just 4 years!!! So many times I looked at your designs and at the source of your inspiration, and was really surprised how you could see the potential. Every design that you touch, results in absolutely beautiful creations. I am not into bracelets yet. After my daughter lost the very first bracelet that I made because of the clasp, I switched all my attention to earrings. Always looking forward to new earrings ideas from your blog. I’m personally really grateful to you for discovery of metallic beads. These beads really change the look of any item. Thank you for bringing to us new ideas, new beads, interesting colors and designs! Best, Raisa
