Bracelet of the Day: Tweaked Jolie Band - Mint & Purple

  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Light Pewter" (4221)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Light Pewter" (4221)
  • 6mm 2-hole cabochons "Alabaster #29425"
  • Arcos® par Puca® beads "Light Green Luster"
  • Minos® par Puca® beads "Light Green Luster"
  • MiniDuo beads "Chalk Light Green Luster"

Who knew that mint green and purple could go so well together? I wanted to use these mint green beads but I decided that neutral colors such as silver or ivory 2-hole cabochons would look much too boring. I grabbed these purple cabochons on a whim thinking that I had nothing to lose by trying them and I'm sure glad that I did. I love this colorway very much.
