I am so glad you are enjoying it. I must admit that I have made loads of them and each one looks different. Yours are gorgeous. Those shiny beads work so well.

Are those cat's eye beads? I love the blue one. The pink is pretty too, but not my colour. Your beading is so neat!

Thank you Smile Yes they're cat's eye beads. Sadly my local beadshop have now run out of 6mm so my next bracelet will be just plain 6mm's but that will be half the challenge. They only had the blue and pink left, I'm really hoping there's a bigger more colourful range out there for me somewhere!! Also, magnetic clasp not strong enough - boooo! Will have to change it over to a hooky thingumy!

They look great Tinker. Lovely lovely colour choices. How long do these little beauties take to put together? You guys seem to be making them rather quickly, or is that cos I've lost track of time?

Little beauties Tinker, just seen them on your Flickr. Wonder if I could use up my stash of miracle beads in one of these?

Once I got the initial - do a bit, check, undo, redo, check, etc - part out of the way and I was confident they actually take fairly little time. I would say 3 or 4 hours maybe? Major kudos to Pru because the tut is very easy to follow.

Miracle beads would look gorgeous Lisa.

I'm currently using plain round beads, which aren't actually very round, or uniform, or even 6mm as it turns out, and getting very different results. Still liking it though.
