Beautiful shades of deep blue come together in this bracelet to create a look that speaks of the night sky gleaming with stars. Cheri used an Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend for an easy color palette for this loomed piece. With slightly larger fire-polished beads thrown into the mix, this bracelet has a subtle wavy texture to the edges. Discover more inspiration for using Artbeads Designer Blends in your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
