Daydreamer Bracelet

Okay, so this didn't photograph so well...I'm blaming the bracelet, not my photography is Jill Wiseman's Daydreamer...I used miniduos and 15/0s and made it a bangle.  It's very comfortable and rolls right on my wrist...I can't believe I actually made it to fit right!  I always stink at doing that.  I don't know if you can tell by the picture, but it's a mixture of bronzes.  I'm working on a double strand tennis bracelet right the rate I bead, I should be finished in about ten years...:)

Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas.

All That Jazz

This is a bracelet that my friend, Terri, showed me how to's basically a glorified right angle weave tennis bracelet with 15/0s in the ditches...easy to make...I reinforced it A LOT because I used gold KO thread before I EVEN thought about the sharp edges on the metal beads...should've used Fireline but I didn't want thread to show...even though I had to reinforce a lot, I'm really glad that I used the gold thread.  The bracelet has a nice feel.  I used 2.5mm gold-filled rounds for the base and embellished with 15/0 gold Miyuki's and 3mm gold-filled bicones...used the the same 15/0 gold Miyuki's in the ditches...used a magnetic button clasp.  Email me at with any comments or questions!  :)

Pinnacle Bands

This is another pattern by Deborah Roberti...I'm REALLY liking her patterns.  This was fun to make and is very comfortable to wear.

This is Deborah Roberti's Stacker pattern using only tilas.  The last one that I did was another variation...I think this one works better if your Super Duo is not the same color as your 11/0 bead that's closest to it.  I was especially pleased with the clasp because it kinda looked like the tilas!   :)  Also, I found out the hard way that Super Duos work WAY better than twins in this pattern.

Super Duo Bracelet

I made this bracelet to stack with another that I will post next...but I liked it so much that it's fine by itself...I used gold super duos with 2mm crystal rounds between each.  This turned out to be a very comfortable bracelet!
