To use up some bugle beads I searched for bracelet patterns and found this one.
The top bracelet mostly follows the pattern. I noticed that I had some seed beads that matched the bugle beads. So, for something different, I replaced every 4th bulge bead with 5 seed beads.
I love the result and as I beaded I thought of the possibilities.
When I finished I immediately started on bracelet #2 (the bottom one).
This time the bugle was shorter so I only needed 4 seed beads to replace one. And, instead of a matching seed bead I picked random seed beads out of my bead soup. (See the top picture on this posting). I also left off the drops.
Like the toggle bead on the bracelet #1? It came from a trunk show of Humming Line Beads.
This was a quick and easy bracelet pattern and I recommend it if you are using up beads.
