Honeycomb Bracelet & Earrings Set - Turquoise & Copper

  • 11/0 seed beads Toho "Hybrid Metallic Dusty Cedar" (YPS0014)*
  • 8/0 seed beads Toho "Hybrid Metallic Dusty Cedar" (YPS0014)*
  • Honeycomb beads "Green Turquoise Lumi"
  • 4mm druks "Turquoise Pink Topaz Luster"

* See my note below about this color.

You can get Deborah Roberti's free "Honeycomb Stackers" pattern HERE at Around the Beading Table. Download my free "Tiny Honeycomb Earrings" pattern from THIS post.

You can get these Honeycomb beads from Queen City Bead on Etsy HERE.

Unfortunately, I don't think you can buy druks in this color anymore. I got these a very long time ago from but, when I ordered some more of them recently, I found that the dye lot is now completely different and the new dye lot doesn't match these Honeycomb beads. I also looked through my fire polished beads and found the same issue. My older dye lot of 4mm "Milky Turquoise Pink Topaz Luster" fire polished beads goes perfectly with these Honeycombs. The new dye lot that I have does not. There are two other fire polished colors that might do in a pinch but they're both a darker shade of turquoise. They are "Persian Turquoise Bronze Picasso" and "Turquoise Copper Picasso". Having said that, I can't promise that there won't be a dye lot issue with them as well.

If you want to take a chance on the dye lot, Red Panda has the druks HERE. They also have the fire polished beads HERE. Aura Crystals has the "Persian Turquoise Bronze Picasso" fire polished beads HERE and the "Turquoise Copper Picasso" HERE.

Supply Emporium has the copper (Dusty Cedar) 11/0 seed beads HERE (see my note below). Claire has some 8/0 beads that go by the same name but they are purple instead of copper. Red Panda also has the copper ones in 11/0 HERE and 8/0 HERE but the 8/0 beads are nearly sold out.

NOTE: There was a color name issue with the supplier of these seed beads where they had two different colors with the same name and number. It looks like the new name and number for these copper beads is "Metallic Potter's Clay" (YPS0019). Supply Emporium just got some in but I don't know if any other bead shops or sites have them yet with the new name and number. Just be careful if you order them with the old color name and number online because you could end up with purple beads instead of copper ones. If you're not sure, ask the shop before you order them if they are copper or purple. To be sure that you get the correct color, I recommend that you buy the new "Metallic Potter's Clay" beads from Supply Emporium rather than the ones called "Metallic Dusty Cedar". Below are links to the 11/0 and 8/0 sizes:
