Beadwork Medallion Sizing for Michelle Gowland’s Caliente Bracelet Pattern
Michelle Gowland’s Caliente Bracelet in the October/November 2017 issue of Beadwork has uniquely sizeable components. Using a 2-hole bead in the center of the medallion and working in rounds allows you to easily alter the medallion size.
First, you can use various size beads for the center, from 3mm to 8mm. Next, you can add or skip the size 15 seed beads between the SuperDuos in Round 1, which lets you adjust the number of SuperDuos you use in in this round. Finally, you can do as many rounds as you like.
