Robin’s samples use two sizes of seed beads (8/0 and 6/0) in just two colors, but notice how when you mix the five cord colors you get a variety that looks like so much more. When finishing the tails of each bracelet, Robin found it easier to use the 6/0 seed beads on all the tails rather than trying to fit 8/0’s on the ends, as Brittany did in the original samples.
