This is a variation of a pattern by Nancy Owens. She has the most beautiful pattern for a ring in Bead & Button Favorites. It's called Bicone Bijoux and is on page 38. If you look at the ring pattern, you can see what I did...I used all 8mm Swarovski's instead of varying the sizes. The ring pattern is so versatile...I just love it!

I am so sorry that I have been lax in posting. I am still beading every chance that I get...just not photographing and posting messages like I should. Anyhow, I finished this bracelet. It was so easy. The base is kind of boring and time-consuming, but once you start embellishing, you can see that it is absolutely necessary. The pattern may be found in the April 2006 issue of Bead and Button and is designed by Karmen Schmidt. It's on page 115. I am SOOO going to make this again in other colors. I am going to try to be more diligent in posting! :)
I hope that everyone has a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
