    Your bracelet is beautiful! And intriguing. I have no idea what Csilla means. The name is as mysterious as the color. On my phone I can’t tell if it’s bronze or purple? Or both? Anyway it’s a great design. Love the toggle too. Welcome to the gallery! :)

    Very interesting design franny. What is it made of? Design is very pretty and like kye – I love the toggle.

    Don’t worry fanny. All of us experience technical difficulties from time to time. We make jewelry not electronic thingies. Welcome to the gallery blurb or no blurb. :)

    I like your very unique design with its unusual color. I don’t do bead work but I admire the skill you and the other beaders have.

    Question: Are there two different diameters of beads?

  6. Little Round Chick
    Little Round Chick says:

    Ooooops… that should have been sizes not diameters. Oh, well …

    Based on design by Csilla Czirmaz…Czech glass 2-hole beads:Cabochon(black), Gemduo(Silver&Citrus/Peach)plus Toho 8/0 demiround & seed beads (available at LB
    I modified by adding Gemduo at clasp end of strap & reducing the strap width.
    The pattern/tutorial is free from Lima Beads with purchase.

    So glad you posted your work! It’s beautiful- love the color too! Is the pattern hard to follow?

    The bracelet strap & detail is beadwoven with Toho Crystal Rose-Gold Lined 8/0 Seed Bead & Toho Crystal Rainbow Gold Lined 8/0 Demiround (yes LRC these beads are diff. widths along the string)….hope this clears the mystery…

    RNC pattern is easy to follow, simple steps & clear directions…this is a simple design.
    The front section could be lengthened to make a very simply bracelet if you wished as
    the strap section requires focus but is repetitive. Try it!

    Lovely bracelet! I really like how you used the GemDuos in this design. The colors are so attractive together. Thanks for the closeup you just posted too–It’s nice to see the details. Welcome to the gallery–look forward to seeing more of your beautiful work! :)

    You can access free pattern at LB: Czech Glass/ Shop by Shape/ Czechmates/ Free Patterns…….Spring in Bloom Bracelet Pattern (by Csilla Csirmaz corr.)
    I was thrilled with how this bracelet turned out; as well as the colours being delicate it’s a little bit elegant, a little bit deco geo., with gorgeous ’30′s drape…it would happily take you out (or in) for the evening…I’ve been wearing it constantly!
