About this Bugle Bead Bracelet

This bracelet pattern originated when I found out that Eureka Crystal Beads would begin stocking the Miyuki Tila and Half Tila beads. I really began to play around with them after sharing the Half Tila Herringbone bracelet tutorial, and love how well they pair with Miyuki bugle and seed beads.

Colors Used in this bracelet:

Bugles — Matte Gunmetal

Half Tilas — Metallic Gold Iris

Seed Beads — TOHO Galvanized Starlight
