    1. Hi Cheryl! I bought them at a Michaels here in Naples. The brand is: Bead Landing. The product name: "plastic stud beads", 56 pc. It's a mix of silver and antique brass colored studs.

  3. Thank you so much for this beautiful design. Last year I bought some pyramids but wasn't sure what to do with them. Just finishing this bracelet and it looks stunning. Instead of using #8s on the outside, I used drop beads and even though I couldn't get any sound was able to follow your video. I love your work. Cheers Lorraine

  4. Hi Larissa :) Do you think this bracelet can be made without O-beads?

    1. Hi Jenna! I'm not sure if it will work well because in the pictures, the length of 3 superduos in herringbone looks shorter than the length of the pyramid stud. But what if you replace the O-beads by seed beads? I only don't know which one would be better: 15/0 or 11/0.

    2. Thank you, Larissa :) I will try the size 15 and see if that works :)

    3. I successfully made the bracelet using size 15's instead of O-beads. I took a picture, but not sure how to upload or attach a photo here.
