Bracelet of the Day: Tweaked Jolie Band - Blue & Ivory

  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • 6mm 2-hole cabochons "Chalk White Baby Blue Luster"
  • Arcos® par Puca® beads "Opaque Beige Luster"
  • Minos® par Puca® beads "Opaque Beige Luster"
  • MiniDuo beads "Crystal Gold Bronze"

I came up with my tweaked version of Deb's pattern after making this same colorway using her original version of "Jolie Bands". You can read my other post HERE. I thought it would be fun to make one of the tweaked bracelets using the same colors and I love how the seed beads outline the ivory beads so that they show up better. Regular "Jolie" is a cute casual style bracelet. Adding the MiniDuos and a border to each motif makes it a little more dressy. Below is the original version of the bracelet in this colorway:
