Bracelet of the Day: Claudia - Ivory & Aqua

  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Gold" (4202)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Gold" (4202)
  • Cali beads "Chalk Cream Shimmer"
  • SuperDuo beads "Pastel Light Cream (25110)"
  • SuperDuo beads "Turquoise Green White Luster"

Here's a nice, summery colorway. I don't use bright gold seed beads very often but they were just the thing for this bracelet.

UPDATE 7/13/17: I just found out when I thought I had ordered more of them that the old package of "Pastel Cream (25039)" SuperDuos that I had was labeled incorrectly. What I actually had was "Pastel Light Cream (25110)". I discovered the error when I ordered some "Pearl Coat Cream (25039)" thinking they would be the same color because the number matched what was on my bag. They are not the same color and would not work with this colorway at all. They are a darker yellowish cream instead of pale off-white that matches these Cali beads. I've corrected the color information in the bead list above. Be sure to match up the color number, not just the color name, if you buy beads to make this colorway.

Here are swatches of the two shades of cream so you can see the difference:

Pearl Coat Cream (25039)
Aura Crystals has this color HERE.
Red Panda has this color HERE and HERE.

Pastel Light Cream (25110)
Aura Crystals has this color HERE.
Red Panda has this color HERE.

  1. this is beautiful! i seldom use bright gold in any beads, but it's perfect here. I love how you used two colors of Super Duos also.
