Bluango Bracelet, First Beading of the New Year

This is the first beading I’ve done in the new year.
Blue and gold is a classic color combination. But this dark blue and shinny gold combination in this bracelet just evokes Cleopatra to me. hehe I think it’s a beautiful contrast.
I decided to leave the back unadorned so that you would have 2 styles in one. If you are wearing a more casual outfit, you could wear the back. If you are wearing a something more dressy, you could wear it front side out. :) 2 bracelets in one! 
Created Jan 24, 2013 (2hrs of Labor) while watching Bones (I hate Pelant) and NCIS.
Design inspired by a bracelet made by NiteDreamerDsgn (funny enough, her name is Mandy). I’ve made the base numerous times for different bracelets but I loved the overlay look so I added it this time. 
Stitch: Right Angle Weave (RAW)
Materials: Nylon thread, 4mm Swarovski crystal bicones in Dark Sapphire, 6mm Swarovski Pearls in Night Blue, Size 11 gold seed beads, Size 11 silver lined gold seed beads.
I packaged it in the fun origami envelope. You can make one too, just followTHIS video tutorial from Rosemarie995. :)


  1. Wow! That does remind me of Cleopatra! The color combo is gorgeous and I love that you can wear it two different ways! I'm sure whoever gets that bracelet is going to cherish it for years to come :)

  2. A crystal brooch is not what many people will consider as the best state of fashion today. However, possibly this is wrong. Possibly they have got to boast a better place in an average person's wardrobe. Once all, nowadays, many people appearance as if they are clones of each other bracelets for girls and how can we ever tell what we may have in common with another person? Well, a crystal brooch very well might solve this problem.

  3. Those with a passion for all creatures great and small may well appreciate an animal pendant as a gift, to remind them of their favorite mammal. Kitty cats and dolphins tend to be popular choices and make great bracelets for girls presents for kids, young and old.i like it.
