Mumbai Masala Bracelet

About this design:

I made this bracelet from a tutorial called "Mumbai Masala" Bracelet, an original design by Smadar Grossman of Smadar's Treasures. It took a LONG time to finish it. I love the exotic color and design. It looks fantastic on. I can hardly wait to wear it.


Seed beads, Swavorski crystals, and fire polished beads.

    Thank you, Elaine, Linda, and Sunny. The instructions were EXCELLENT. They were very clear, and the illustrations showed exactly what to do. She has 1 page for each step.

    I bought the kit, too, because it’s very had to choose and arrange the beads. Jill Wiseman of Tapestry Beads has permission to teach this as a class, and I bought the kit from her. It was really helpful.

    This is incredibly beautiful … I’d be excited to wear it too! This is a showstopper!

    Are you going to make more? BTW, have you made any more of the circle bracelets since the last two? SLS

    Thank you, Shannon.

    I’m not sure which bracelets you are referring to. I’m thinking either the bangle or the Enchanted evening bracelet which has beaded circles grouped together to form either a bracelet or necklace. If it’s the latter, I’ve just about finished a necklace in a black and pink colorway.

    Hi, I was thinking of the Enchanted Evening Bracelet … you did one in purple then I believe on in teal. Wow, can’t wait to see the necklace … bet it’s going to be stunning! SLS
