Robin's Nest Bracelet - Dark Coral

  • 11/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Dark Bronze" (457)
  • 8mm 2-hole Candy beads "Pastel Dark Coral"
  • Pinch beads "Bronze"

This is a very elegant colorway and such a pretty shade of coral red. You can buy Robin Demarse's pattern HERE in Carole Ohl's Etsy shop.

This bracelet pattern works with both Miyuki and Toho seed beads but you will need to adjust the bead count with Toho. With Miyuki beads you use six 11/0 beads on each side of the Candy beads. With Toho beads, use only five on each side. I added a diamond motif on each end to attach my clasp. Without those extensions, the bracelet would have been a little too short for me. For my 6-inch wrist, I needed 8 Candy beads and 32 Pinch beads.

If you need to buy some Candy beads and/or Pinch beads, I have links to sources for both of them over on the right side of my blog under WHERE TO BUY..., or click HERE for Candy beads and HERE for Pinch beads. Bear in mind that they do make a larger size of Pinch beads but these are the regular 5mm size.
