A new Bracelet

October Issue 91 of the Beadworkers Guild Journal has arrived! I’m happy because now I can reveal my Pocket Money Princess bracelet which is in the issue. I’m also in the Designer Spotlight with a catch up of what I’ve been doing for the last year. But back to the bracelet…

We are all looking at alternatives to Swarovski, so I decided to use Aurora 8mm Rivoli, and Preciosa 3mm bicone crystals for extra sparkle. For seed beads I used some soft metallics and the new Jewel colours from Miyuki. The design beads up relatively quickly, with each segment growing from the next, so it’s easy to check the length and fit.
