I had to look closely before I realized that this contemporary bracelet was not made from metal but from 11/0 seed beads and 3 and 30 mm bugle beads!  The easy to stitch tutorial is by Japanese beader, Sapphirus.  This is probably my favorite design in the tennis bracelet style. Simple, yet stunning.

Bugle beads are so underrated in beading.  Here the metallic colored ones are used to simulate metal frames. Very clever.

I would use 6 lb Fireline if you don't have the beading thread shown. Wire guardians are also another option at the clasp ends to protect the thread.

These will make very quick to make gifts!

Trouble getting hold of 30 mm bugle beads?  You can get them here. Same with the 3 mm ones.
