I just got a package of crystal bicones in the mail today, 1200 fire-glazed purple ones. I had a thought that I could make a few bracelets as prizes for my Red Hat Bunco next month (we don't play for money, these are just small token prizes). I love the colors that bounce off these beads!
The pattern for this can be found here at Deborah Roberti's site. She has a lot of good patterns for basic jewelry, and sells patterns for more elaborate pieces. I don't really care for a wide cuff bracelet most of the time; a skinny one like this suits me fine. A bracelet like this is very economical, too. 100 bicones and even fewer seed beads are enough to fit most wrists, so it could be made with leftovers from a larger project, too.
This isn't very different than the pattern I use for my tennis bracelet, except I use seed beads along the whole side instead of bicones. I knew I couldn't be the first person to think of arranging beads this way.
