Blue Seed Bead Bracelet with Dagger Fringe
designed by Cynthia Kimura
Skill LevelBeginner
Time4-6 hours
Approximate Size6 Inches

The blue seed beads in this Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend are so eye-catching! I wanted to make them look really special with laser-etched dagger beads and magical tile beads. The button is a nice touch, as the texture echoes the daggers.

Seed beads and Czech glass are a perfect match in this gorgeous bracelet design. Cynthia used blue seed beads from an Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend in her peyote stitch creation. She then trimmed the look with Czech glass dagger beads and tiles. You can see more inspiration for using some of our Seed Bead Blends in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
