I am so pleased with how this one turned out!
We basically put together everything we could think of in the crystal and silvers (except the tiny beads), added the Jet Vitrail daggers as well as the Crystal Vitrail (and tear drops and the like), put in some Moon Faces and began to knit with a silver thread.
When we finished -- wow, again.
I had planned to use the silver version of the "Aztec" clasp, as shown with the other Bead Stew bracelets and have this one as the Crystalline version of the Rock Candy bracelet. But the finished product reminded me so much of glowing flowers -- ever hear of Moon Flowers? I've never seen them but I was told at a gardening show that they bloom at night and give off a luminescent glow.
So I chose the Dragon Fly clasp to emphasize the flowery aspect. We really like it but if you would prefer the simplicity of the other clasp, just let us know via the "Comments" section as you check out.
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.
And bear in mind that the kit doesn't come with needles -- we like to use size 0s for the knitting, which are available via our Hooks and Needles websection.
We really think you'll love this one....
