I saw an absolutely gorgeous, gorgeous bracelet a while back over at Backstory Beads where Karin showed us a beaded bracelet with circles for the last ATTS hop (A Time to Stitch). I could not stop thinking about it. I really wanted to try this pattern by Rachel Nelson Smith featuring the O. Mosaic Cuff. I really should just break down and buy the book Seed Bead Fusion, but I thought I could figure out this pattern. I did eventually work it out, but I completely lost count of how many times I pulled out all the stitching .... was it 15 times? sigh. Just buy the book.
I went with a mud-brown color and gold circles. I wanted the circles to stand out, but not over power it. So I did not fill in any of the circles. I had a couple of people tell me the pattern looked like the classic quilt Wedding Ring pattern. I agree it does, or maybe the Olympic Rings? The first time I wore this out I had at least 4 different people ask if they could see it and pulled it off my arm. It really is kind of a stunning pattern. One person even mentioned how cool it would look as a choker. Hmmmm, now that's an idea. Might be next up.
