COLOR PLAY BANDS

©2019 Deborah Roberti

Color Play Bands

A variation of my Flutter Bracelet, these Color Play Bands are created by first beading the thinner band using size 8/0 and 11/0 rocaille seed beads, most any type of 4mm beads and SuperDuo beads. If you want, you can then embellish this thinner band with more 11/0 seed beads and 4mm fire-polished beads to make a wider and more elaborate bracelet. Use one color or different colors of 4mm and SuperDuo beads for infinite color combos. As always, full step-by-step instructions with illustrations included.

Stitch: right-angle weave and netting variation

Beads Used: Size 8/0 seed beads, size 11/0 Miyuki rocaille seed rocaille beads (Toho brand may be a bit too fat), SuperDuo beads (SuperDuos can be one color, two different colors, three different colors or a combination of solid colors and SuperDuo Duet beads), size 4mm beads (Crystal bicones, fire-polished or round beads work best and you can use 4mm beads of one color, two colors or many colors) and 4mm fire-polished beads for the wider embellished version

Approx Finished Size: About .8 inches wide for the thinner band and about 1.25 inches wide for the embellished band to desired length
