These ultra sparkly beads work particularly well in the Sitting Pretty bracelet. The beads perch up on the modified ladder braid to catch the light and maximise the sparkle. The beads themselves are not cheap, but this design uses very few. With less than 12 beads you can make a real statement. The beads can be fragile, so a design like this, where part of the bead is protected by the braid, is a wise precaution. You still need to be careful not to knock the top of the bead, but if the worst happens and a crystal is loosened and lost, you can just turn that side of the bead to the inside of the bracelet, where the loss will be invisible!
