About this design:

This bracelet was popular with my family, so I made a few more as Xmas gifts. The pictures don't really reflect this, but I have used light rose SW bicones for both this time and for the last one, I have used SSilver seed beads. The many different colors of bicones and seed beads offer unlimited possibilities and I am planning a few more! With experience, I can now make one in approx. 3 hours :-)


Light rose 4 & 6mm SW bicones, Sterling Silver and Gold 11/0 seed beads and toggle clasps.

    Johanne, these are gorgeous! Reminds me of a crystal clear morning with fresh snow on the ground, even if it IS light rose! What a lot of work, but so worth it! :D

    Many thanks ladies :) For those interested; go to; under “Flat Spiral Stitch” (use the search engine). You will find 2 learning videos there, because you can also add a second row to these bracelets if you wish.
    Enjoy and share, and Happy Holidays!!
