More About the Criss Cross Beaded Bracelet

If you don’t have DiamonDuos, but have GemDuos, definitely still give this pattern a try. Sometimes those beads are interchangeable since they are very similar, I made this bracelet in all sorts of fun colorways, and especially like when the DiamonDuos and Candy Beads contrast color-wise. The seed bead border provides a beautiful outline of these fun shapes. Try to use Japanese seed beads for this design, since their uniformity does matter in a pattern like this one.
