About this design:

I saw a pattern for this beaded bracelet and decided to give it a try. I love greens and purple together. I’m going to also try a blue version with the same pattern.


Czech glass tubelet beads, 8/0 seed beads and 3mm fire polished beads. Snap leather clasp.

    The pattern is called River Bend Bracelet by Sam Wescott on Etsy.

    Nice. It looks kinda southwestern. And such an interesting way to clasp the bracelet. Good color combination too.

    I love the different beads…I can’t quite make out the clasp…is it a button?

    Jane, it’s a snap. It’s very easy to put on and off.

    Great bracelet. The tublet beads are very pretty. They look pretty big. The colors are fantastic. And the snap looks so handy.

    Beady, I know what you mean – tubelets are 6x 2.8mm. Not really big, but feel that way when you’re using them with 8/0’s

    Thanks Robin. I haven’t seen them before. Beautiful bracelet.

    The tubelets are much nicer than bugles.

    This is so cool! Seed beads with that awesome clasp makes me want to try something like that. I’ve never noticed tubelets before. I’d love to look at my wrist and see this.

    Ditto Kye! I’m in love with this one! The colors are fantastic–and the handmade closure is a wonderful way to finish it off. :)
