Tips:

  1. Substitute daggers, pear-shaped or briolette beads instead of teardrops for a similar look. E bead is a common name for size 6/0 seed beads.
     
  2. This bracelet fits a 7” wrist. To adjust the pattern for a different size, use a bead board to arrange the beads and measure before stringing.

I believe the correct amount of blue teardrop beads for this size bracelet is 40. There are five sections of teardrops consisting of eight beads (4 on each strand).
