Bracelet of the Day: Jolie Band - Gold & Blue

  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Light Bronze" (457L)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Light Bronze" (457L)
  • 6mm 2-hole cabochons "Alabaster #29434"
  • Arcos® par Puca® beads "Bronze Gold Matte"
  • Minos® par Puca® beads "Bronze Gold Matte"

As you can see, I did make a "Jolie Band" using the matte gold Arcos and Minos beads but I used 2-hole cabochons instead of Honeycomb Jewel beads. I think that the bold gold color needs an equally bold accent color like this blue. This is the only color that I have in Arcos and Minos beads and I'd like to see how this bracelet looks in some other colors. They come in a pretty pale green that I might try sometime.

  1. Hi Linda You do a beautiful job with the new beads. They are not my cup of tea but you make them presentable.
