Ndebele bracelet using the right sized beads
It is really odd but the large beads were more pinky/neutral when I bought them. The whole bracelet seems to have taken on the amethyst tones of the seed beads to give it a generally purple look. I really love it - it is such a beautiful pattern and so easy to do. I have gold tone beads too and have started another bracelet this morning. When made with the correct 4mm cubes and size 5 triangles, the bracelet loses some of its final rigidity and flows more. I added an extra seed bead in each pocket to make it firmer.
