Components: Wow..where do I begin ? Well, I again used the Jewel Loom by Beadalon. This loom is getting the lions share of usage !!! I used the WildFire beading thread in black. The bracelet consists of the Czech Mates 2 hole tile beads and half tile beads. Toho seed beads make up the rest of my design. Toho seed beads in size 8/0. The colors are: Frosted Matte Dark Purple and the Silver-Lined Black Diamond. I finished it by using the 25 mm silver plated ribbon crimps. Very plain and works beautifully against the beads. A simple silver toggle and clasp.

Arizona Southwest by Design

I'm still bead looming as I am finishing with my Czech Mates two hole beads. I am challenging myself with looming a one inch wide cuff bracelet....
Components: Two rolls of the Czech Picasso Opaque Yellow two hole tile beads. The image doesn't really tell the true colors of this particular bead. More of the dark mustard color yellow with different patterns of browns and hint of the dark muddy turquoise blue smidgen in there. I used the Toho seed beads in size 8/0. The semi-translucent dark brown beads are Miyuki also in 8/0. The Toho colors are: Marbled Opaque Turquoise / Blue - Gold- Lustered African Sunset / Silver-Lined Black Diamond. In the middle of each section are 3 mm round matte silver Czech druk beads. I like to mix it up a bit whenever possible. This was done on the Jewel Loom by Beadalon using the WildFire bead thread in black. My local bead store carries these wonderful silver plated 25 mm ribbon crimps. Perfect as keeping it simple. I finished it with a simple silver toggle and clasp.

I've Got the Blues

I just love denim and I wear my jeans faithfully when I'm hanging out with my gal pals. I didn't have a bead loomed bracelet with anything blue....
Components: I used my Jewel Loom by Beadalon along with the Beadalon WildFire bead thread in black. I had these very distinctive Czech Mates 2 hole tile beads with the Picasso design. Sort of a jet black with blues mixed in. The blues show the denim color. Perfect for what I wanted. I used Toho seed beads in just two colors : Opaque jet black and the Marbled Opaque Turquoise / Blue. Don't let that Turquoise / Blue fool you. The color of this particular bead really picks up the blues in the Czech Mates to a tee. Yet, gives the right amount of contrast in the design. I wanted to mix it up a bit. I decided to place these wonderful silver metallic looking 6 mm rice beads into my design. I like what or how this turned out. I used the 20 mm silver metal ribbon crimps along with a simply styled silver toggle and clasp.
