When Artbeads contacted me about participating in the Spring Blogging for Beaders, I chose gorgeous blue zircon Swarovski settings to create my Coronet set. At the same time, I received lots of 3mm Swarovski pearls in four different colors. I had a design in mind and while it didn’t turn out exactly as planned, I like the final results even better than the original idea!
I used the pearls, along with Delica beads in both 15/o and 11/o sizes, to make three netted rope bracelets with identical copper box clasps. The bracelets can be worn individually or together, but they can also be linked together to make a choker (with two bracelets) or a longer necklace (with all three bracelets). The bracelets are slightly graduated in length, so that when they are all worn together, they fit the wrist comfortably.
