About this design:

I have had the citrine beads for a while and just bought some orange thread...I have been meaning to make a bracelet with it but have just been busy with other things! So today I sat down and decided to incorporate some of the sunset orange, hyacinth and marmalade crystal! It turned out so bright and sunny! :)


natural orange 2mm leather, 6mm citrine beads, 8mm sunset orange, 4mm hyacinth, and 4m marmalade crystal, copper leaf toggle, orange c-lon D thread

    Luscious! Love the colors and design. Coincidently, was just admiring that leaf toggle today; fall is right around the corner. Your bracelet looks lovely – reminds me of the transition from summer to fall.

    Icy and refreshing! Love how this turned out! And the leaf toggle is perfect!

    Gotta’ question for you Jess. How did you incorporate the multiple beads (and wider spacing) in the center? Whenever I try to do this, the outer beads ‘float’ around or they all end up at an angle and not straight across. (Hope that made sense.) Do I see extra wraps around the leather to help hold them in place?

    @Mary S-Anytime I go from a smaller bead to a larger and back down or use multiple beads I try to go back through the beads either, double or triple…generally the bigger beads you can do three passes…it helps keep them in place and eases the transition to the next set of beads! I had tried just doing one pass before and didn’t feel that the thread would support the weight and size of the larger beads! The double and triple pass through the beads works wonders! Hope this helps! ;)
