new pattern: Any Bead Bracelet

Any Bead Bracelet, $4.00 at and


I call this bracelet the "Any Bead Bracelet" because you can use any 4mm beads (round beads, druks, glass pearls or gemstones, bicone crystals or fire-polished beads) and any two-hole beads (Twins, SuperDuos, Czechmates, Czechmate Bricks or Tila beads) to create many different bracelets from just one pattern design. And when you have exhausted all possible combinations, substitute 3mm beads or size 6/0 seed beads for the 4mm beads for even more variations.
