  1. Great bracelet - so far I've not spotted these jewel beads from any UK suppliers but will certainly let you know if I hear of any.

  2. Love all of your designs & color choices. In preparing to purchase the beads however, I'm having difficulties finding the beads you list in the pattern. Could you possibly include your vendor names?

    1. I don't remember where I got the mauve seed beads but you can do a Google search for the brand and color number. I buy my metallic seed beads from Charlene's Beads. I got the MiniDuos from Aura Crystals.
