Sparkle A-Bridged




Cindy of beadlady.biz fame had these marvelous copper penny 11o beads (#481), and I wanted to test their finish as to stability. Another Stacked Sparkle form bracelet was called forth, but put a 3 bead bridge over and between the crystals, as well as alternating a single bead with the 3 beads called for, in the final step of the pattern. These are the very outside beads. Having 3 beads in every space made it ruffle up, but alternating with a single bead lets it lie flat.


The 8 mm magnetic copper clasp came from Flamingo Beads in Florida, and are super strong.

It took me a minute but i've worked out what you're talking about. It works well and looks good. Great to be able to adjust these patterns to suit various circumstances. Kaite

your bracelet turned out pretty.. I have my Bead & Button magazine out now to make that very bracelet. I thought it looked familiar when I happened to see it. I hope mine turns out half that good... still trying to decide on colors.
