Since the Arcos and Minos beads don't come in my favorite "Chalk Lazure Blue" color, I at least had to make one with one of my other favorite bead colors: "Senegal Brown Purple" aka "Gold and Smoky Topaz Luster". I've noticed lately that they're making the purple a bit more pronounced than they used to in beads with this color finish which makes me happy. I think it goes quite nicely with these burgundy cabochons. I don't have any Minos beads to match these Arcos but I like the look of these bronze druks even better than Minos beads in this bracelet colorway. They have a more feminine look.
