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.

This is a version of Deborah Roberti's Stackers patterns that was tweaked by Linda Genaw. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Deborah Roberti's patterns. I almost made this one too small...am making another one in different colors...this one will be a little bigger...will post when done.

This bracelet was really cool to make. It wasn't overly hard...it was fun...and I learned new things. The pattern is by Deborah Roberti...http://www.aroundthebeadingtable.com...that was one of the best written patterns that I have ever come across. She had excellent pictures and, to back that up, excellent written directions. You couldn't go wrong! :)

I made this using the same idea as the bangles. Instead of using stretchy material, I used Softflex and a clasp that has a link on one side where you can insert the hook at different places for different lengths...don't know if you call that an adjustable clasp or an extender clasp.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these. My friend, Terri, told me how to do these...you can basically look at them at figure them out...if you're not comfortable with them just rolling over your wrist, you can put them all on a slide lock clasp or wear them individually with clasps. Have to make me some silver ones next!
Thank you, Terri!

Okay, so this isn't amethyst...lol...I used 4mm black Swarovski pearls and 4mm light grey Swarovski pearls...this turned out to be a very nice, comfortable bracelet...Thank you, Jaycee!

Have you ever made a piece of jewelry that you don't know why you made it and you're glad you're finished with it? This looks like a bridal piece. I'm already married and not planning on getting married again anytime soon. I guess I can give it as a present or even save it for my daughter for when she gets married. This is a simple pattern, but it was a stinker to make because of the way the pattern was written. The pattern was perfect until you got to the "V" and then it said basically "reverse what you did for the first side". I had to think too much...lol. I can't remember which magazine the pattern was in...It turned out beautifully, but I would probably have gotten more use out of it had I maybe made it with black pearls and copper crystals? Not going to make another one, though.
