Notice the RounDuos are bunched forward in this photo.
Here I have fixed the issue with the RounDuos by somewhat changing the thread paths. Now they lay flat, but I used so much thread that I could not get the edge beading in. On this design, which is very pretty, the cab motifs tend to flop forward because they are not attached to the center beadwork. So now the RounDuo bunching issue is fixed but there is another issue with too much thread so I can't get the cab motifs attached so they will lay flat.
Here is the final bracelet. It is made totally differently from the first two bracelets. The thread paths are different and actually easier! It makes up more quickly that the previous two bracelet designs. This is the keeper! The RounDuos lay flat, thread does not fill up the beads, and the cab motifs are attached. Making a good cohesive design takes a lot of thought and trial and error!! Designers have to be patient and never give up when designing!!
Happy beading everyone!!!
