I listed some bracelets for the first time in my Etsy shop today. Six bracelets, but only two designs. I think binge making is the way to go till I have a few designs to chose from.

Today’s listings include ‘Trish’s bracelet” although I have not included the same colour of bead that I used when I made a bracelet for Trish, a work colleague who retired a couple of weeks ago. She likes her bracelet so the design was given a thumbs up and I made a few more in different colours, and switched to bicones for most of them.

This design uses 8mm faux white pearls, 4mm bicones, although you could swap out the bicone for a Czech fire polished bead. Here I have used Miyuki Duracoat Galvanised silver 11/0 seed beads too.

It’s a nice and simple design that works up quite quickly. I found it quite relaxing and refreshing to get something made without too much time. I’ll save the harder ones for now.
