Piskota Bracelet - Capri Blue & Bronze

  • 15/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • 6mm fire polished beads "Stone Copper Picasso Capri Blue"
  • 3mm druks "Siam Ruby Bronze Picasso"
  • 4mm druks "Montana Blue Picasso"

I bought this "Pink Piskota" bracelet pattern quite some time ago from AsszaJewelrymania on Etsy and finally had a chance to try making one myself. You can buy the pattern HERE. If you recall, Teejay sent me a couple of these bracelets for Christmas back in 2015 and I blogged about them HERE and HERE. I love both bracelets but I especially like the look of the one that she made with 6mm fire polished beads so that's what I used in today's bracelet. The ones that I used are a wonderful blue color with etched copper "grunge" all over them. I got them from Supply Emporium and you'll find them HERE. They don't really look like the photos there which look like they're covered with silver tarnish. They actually look more like the photo below but the metallic bits are more coppery than gold:

I bought the Montana druks in a local bead shop and haven't seen this color anywhere else. I think you can still find the 3mm druks that I used though. I see that ArtBeads has them HERE and Simply Beads has them HERE.

Teejay changed the connector motifs between the main motifs on the two bracelets that she made for me. I also used a different connector than the one in the pattern instructions and I also changed the way that I attached my clasp. Other than those changes, I made the pattern according to the instructions. While this isn't a difficult pattern to make, it is somewhat complex and there are very few written instructions. However, the diagrams are very clear and easy to understand.

Before making today's bracelet, I made several colorway samples. I'm not sure yet if I will make bracelets in the three colorways above and I thought you might like to see them. The motif connectors on the top left and bottom samples were made as directed by the pattern.
