A long time ago nearly every beader among my friends and family was making these bracelets. We loved them! I learned how to make them at a class at Caravan Beads in Chicago, but later a Beadwork book had the pattern for them. In the pink one below I made a beaded bead for the clasp.
They are sparkly and fun. I have some others that I can show you another time. Most of mine seem to be monochromatic.
At the time I thought these bracelets were really expensive to make because of all the bicone crystals. Little did I know I was on a slippery beaded slope. Those were the days before I discovered semi-precious stones.
