Gray SuperDuo Rosette bracelet #1 (with modification)

The deadline for my Iliad-inspired earring challenge is fast approaching!  You have until 3/31/2014 at 11:59:59p to send me your pictures.  Click the above link for all of the information.  Remember... there's a $25 bead gift certificate for the winner!

Remember the SuperDuo Rosette bracelet I showed you a few days ago that was designed by Sam Wescott?  When I was at Knot Just Beads yesterday I found a bunch of gray, black, and gray/black mottled beads that I thought would be perfect for this design.

Based on the first bracelet I made, I decided to make a slight adjustment and put an 11/0 bead in between the Super Duos that envelop the 3mm center bead.  Here's how that looks before the embellishments are added:

I think that's cute just the way it is, but I wanted to see how it would look with the embellishments.  So I tucked that away in the back of my head and added the embellishments:

While the first picture looks cute, the second looks more polished.

Here are both bracelets next to each other:

My next one will be made to compliment the gray one so I can wear them both together.

If you'd like to make this bracelet, you can purchase the digital download here.  While you're there, check out the Wescott Jewelry shop, where there are some other tutorials and a lot of beautiful finished jewelry.
