Stepping-Stone Band - Cocoa Airy Pearl

  • 11/0 seed beads Toho "Transparent Montana Gold Luster" (204)
  • 8/0 seed beads Toho "Transparent Montana Gold Luster" (204)
  • 3mm fire polished beads "Light Sapphire Gold Marbled"
  • 6mm 2-hole cabochons "Pastel Light Brown"
  • DiamonDuo beads "Cocoa Airy Pearl"

Although Miyuki seed beads work best with this pattern, I had to use Toho seed beads to make this bracelet because they were the best color to go with the rest of the beads. Because Toho beads are larger than Miyuki beads, I only added two 11/0 seed beads over each pair of DiamonDuos instead of three.

You can buy this pattern HERE at Around the Beading Table or HERE in Deb's Etsy shop.

I bought these delicately colored fire polished beads at Aura Crystals but they are out of stock there. I did a Google search and found some HERE at Odyssey Cache. They also have them HERE in their Etsy shop. Theirs might be a different dye lot because mine definitely are a pale blue with gold highlights. Aura Crystals has another color that might be similar but a little more blue. They're called "Light Sapphire Suede Gold" and you'll find them HERE.
