Inspired by Tricks to Laddering
by Brittany Ketcham
Tracy was inspired by a bracelet design she saw many years ago, but she couldn’t find stone cube beads until she came to beadshop.com and saw our Tabby Cubes. She combined them with her own 6mm bronzite beads and 8/0 Miyuki matte metallic gold seed beads. Wrapped in white thread on generous, 2mm brown leather, this design is full of gorgeous chunky texture. We love how she used the Tabby Cubes in a gradient from dark to light in each section. The 6mm round beads add a nice contrast to the cubes, echoed by the matte bronze seed beads which seem to tie the whole thing together and accent the perfect gold flower button!
