new pattern: Brocade Bracelets


 Brocade Bracelets at AroundTheBeadingTable.com

Use size 11 seed beads, SuperDuo beads, size 3mm fire-polished beads and Czechmates tile beads to create two different bracelets using the same weave.  Czechmates brick beads, not shown, will also work beautifully instead of tile beads. The pattern includes detailed step-by-step instructions.
