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. :)
