Evolution of a bracelet
One of the things I worked on this past weekend while in my hotel room is a lovely bracelet by Martina Nagle. I purchased this pattern from her Etsy store a while back and I even bought beads for it in June, but haven’t had time to sit and work on it until now.
This is the original design that I fell in love with…
Martina’s bracelet uses alternating pearls and Swarovski bicones down the center. She added the embellishment with the Size 15 seed beads only on the outside two rows. Gorgeous!
And then I saw Petra Tismer’s variation on Facebook, and fell in love with this one too! Can you see the difference? Petra’s version used the Size 15 embellishment on every hexagon, and added a smaller firepolish bead in the center of each one.
