This entry highlights the 2018 Spring color Blooming Dahlia
The design was done using Ellad2's Daya Bracelet pattern and her Cora Earrings pattern. While the Cora Earrings is not a perfect match to the Daya Bracelet, it uses many of the same bead types and nicely compliments the bracelet design. You can purchase each pattern on Ellad2's website.

The pattern calls for 4mm fire-polished beads, but I used 4mm pearls instead. The pattern also calls for 15/0 seed beads on either side of the 4mm beads on the outer edges, but I used 11/0 seed beads (color 1) instead.
