The strand on the necklace of my last post was essentially a modified spiral rope stitch with an extra stabilization row to make it lie flat. I came up with a variation on the same concept using different size seed beads and a more decorative stabilization row to make a bracelet. This is my first bracelet pattern, but I like it so much I will probably create a matching necklace for it in my next post. I particularly enjoyed experimenting with different color combinations in this design. This is easy and quick to make, and requires only 6/0 TOHO seed beads (in 3 colors) and 11/0 TOHO seed beads (1 color, matching one of the 6/0 colors). Enjoy!
