This entry highlights the 2017 Fall color Ballet Slipper
The design was done using Starman TrendSetter Sue Charette-Hood's pattern, Crescent Cuddles Bracelet. The pattern features beaded beads and 10mm round beads. An extra beaded bead and 10mm round bead make perfect matching earrings.
NOTE - all Starman TrendSetter patterns are FREE -but are limited to print distribution.That means they must bePRINTED and physicallyINSERTED into your package when your order ships. There are two drop down boxes and when you checkout on the Red Panda Beads website, you can select two separate Starman TrendSetters patterns to be included with your order when it ships. To see where the two drop down boxes are,click here.
Note - the original pattern uses 15/0 TOHO seed beads, along with bead wire and crimp beads. The colorways in The Gallery of Color Suggestions are slightly modified versions of the original pattern and the materials listings in the Gallery reflect the changes made for each colorway. In all the colorways, I connected the beads and beaded beads with an 11/0 seed bead, an O bead and another 11/0 seed bead. You can also see in the photos of the clasp end of the bracelets I used an 11/0 seed bead, and O bead and added the wire guards with an 11/0 seed bead on each end of the guard, nestling with the O bead.

Bracelet as instructed measures approx. 7.00" before clasp. Each Crescent piece mearusres approx .75".NOTE - the larger size of the 10mm and beaded beads require a bit more length to fit as other thinner bracelets on your wrist. I normally wear a 6.5" bracelet - but find that the 7" length in this pattern fits nicely.
