It's always an adventure to try out something new in the craft world, so my order consisted of everything I needed to make this bracelet. OK, so I ordered the wrong Fireline thread, but another quick visit to Auntie's Beads and I had the correct color and weight of Fire Line in a few days.
The new beads I used (well, new to me) are Miyuki Tila beads, little flat squares with two holes going through them. I made my own color combination using the Tila beads in metallic silver gray, black seed beads, and 4mm Swarovski bicones in Indian Pink. The directions for this bracelet are right there on the same link -- a complete video showing how to craft this bracelet from start to finish. And the result? See for yourself:

I will say that I would consider this to be an intermediate project, not super-easy or beginner, but also not difficult enough to be labeled "advanced". This is one bracelet project that I would make again, using different color combinations. I love beading projects like this and don't seem to do them often enough. But I do look forward to visiting the Auntie's Beads website again to see what else I can create!
