Pebble Bracelet – beading pattern available

Pebble Bracelet by Rose Rushbrooke

Pebble Bracelet by Rose Rushbrooke

I am totally enamoured with the Picasso finish on many styles of beads. This bracelet uses seed beads and fire polish crystals. They are such lovely earthy colours and together they make a subtle statement. This bracelet is fastened with a snap clasp and is made with 8 components and 2 end circles for the snaps. I like working in components as it means you can take your work anywhere and make one piece at a time before putting it together.

If you would like to buy this pattern you can find it under Pebble Bracelet or the Pattern section of my beadwork website.

Beaded Horn of Plenty and necklace

The initial design of this 3-D piece began at a Masterclass with Nancy Cain at the Milwaukee Bead and Button Show.

I got stuck on filling it with the conventional fruits and veggies. However, common sense prevailed and I made a delicate necklace for the bounty spilling out of a basket.

Cobalt Picasso Tile Superduo Bracelet

Can you tell I like making these bracelets? I’ve made them in 3 different colorways and I’ve still got some more ideas. The new picasso finish – which is turning up on all types of beads – really appeals. And when they are paired up with peacock tiles – well……., yum.

This is what the bracelet looks like lying out flat. It’s 8″ long from the tip of the toggle to the clasp, and is 1″ wide. It fits a wrist diameter of just over 7″.

Here’s a back view so you can see how pretty the beads are together.

Here is a tile superduo clasp bracelet in another colourway. I am thoroughly enamored with the new picasso finish on today’s beads. And I like the peacock finish on tiles and drops. In this instance the turquoise superduo double hole beads go with the slightly greenish, creamish, brownish picasso tile beads.

I think it has something to do with the earthiness – the beads look like polished stones.

And of course, it is all helped along by using one of Jenny Davies-Razor’s ceramic rings. Again, total love affair going on here.
