Cleopatra

by: Pam Kearns

The cool waters of the Nile - the rich copper of the rising sun!

I love the combination of turquoise and antique copper. I also like putting beads in frames to accentuate the shapes. This combination of beads fits the 14 mm hex frames perfectly!

The project uses basic string techniques; to make it longer or shorter, add or eliminate the beads between the frames, or simply add more frames.

With the chain extender - this bracelet is 8 - 9.5 inches long. Adjust appropriately if you want it smaller.

Unfortunately - we ran out of one of the key components before this was published. :-(  Hate it when that happens.

However - if you don't happen to have some of the bead frames in your stash, you could try this in brass instead of copper. It would look very nice too!
