Mino Pendant by Puca

This is a tutorial by Potomac Bead Company on YouTube.
You can make it into a pendant or earrings, but for me it was a little too big for earrings, so I made it into a pendant.
It uses the Arcos and IOS beads by Puca.

Ande Bracelet

This bracelet is a pattern I found on the internet many years ago.
I just love this pattern , I have made a lot of bracelets using this pattern.
The original pattern calls for 4mm crystal beads, but I changed it to 4mm cube beads.
These beads are Chinese cubes that I bought at the GemFaire for $2 a strand. I also used gold 11/0 delicas and 15/0 seed beads in gold as well.
This pattern is by Andrea Bánhalmi.

And this is the pattern I followed, but I used 2 rows instead of 3.
This a flat herringbone stitch.
