I had fun with this one!

Again it started with a clasp that I really like. The dragonfly here is made of lead-free pewter in a gold tone in a hook-and-eye style in a most ingenious manner.

Then we put together quite a Bead Stew mix!

We threw in reds and golds and topazes and blacks and a few oranges as well in a glorious medley of colors. If you look very closely you will see not only our "usual" shapes of 6/0s, 8/0s, cubes, triangles, megatamas and tear drops, but also donuts, lentils and a variety of sizes of fire polish crystals. [We added an assortment of fire colors in 4mm rounds, some reds, blacks and oranges in 4mm in an intriguing flattened shape and some larger (much) crystals in varying blacks for a wonderful contrast.]  Of course, beads go in and out of stock and your mix might vary, but the overall look will mirror this original one. 

Such fun!

Then we threaded them onto a metallic gold thread, in a random fashion and began knitting -- these are such easy and rewarding pieces.

Unfortunately, the clasp which inspired this all turned out to be not-very-well-made and occasionally broke with use. Which is absolutely not alright with us -- we seek out high quality findings so that these bracelets will last looking great. So the bracelet is still being offered -- the colors and the look will be the same -- but with a different clasp. The clasp will be a toggle clasp, in a gold tone and will look very fine indeed; it just will not be a dragonfly, alas.

The kit contains the bead mix, the thread, a clasp and the pattern (unless you already have it, in which case the option to get the kit without is in the drop-down menu below).

The pattern is the same as for all of the Bead Soup and Bead Stew Bracelets -- you have the option to get it or not via the drop-down menu.

Note that the kit will not automatically include the pattern. We offer three options. I know some of you might already have made other bracelets from us that are made along the same lines, the only real changes being the beads and the colors. If you feel you do not need another pattern, simply choose "No Pattern Needed."

If you would like a printed copy, please make sure the "Pattern" drop-down menu is set to that.

We also can email the pattern to you, though I have to do it manually and usually send it right before I mail the kit (please be patient). Just make sure that drop-down menu is set as you would like before you check out. You will need to provide your own needles -- we recommend size 0s (2mm).


This bracelet is a brilliant rhapsody of fire colors !
