The rose bracelet is very interesting, numerologically speaking. 196 rows = 2x2x7x7. 12 beads per row = 2x2x3. 3 latch beads. 3 loops of 17 beads each for the other end of the latch. And the way I’m putting the latch beads on, they were held with pairs of 3, 4, and 5 stopper beads, respectively. (Until that didn’t work and I ended up adding the 3 pale green stone beads. Can’t hurt!)
Once I figured out the numbers, plus rose = symbols of secrets and Mary, I figured this might be good for bashing unpleasant supernatural types over the head. And there are 2 “ghost beads” in the design, for further confounding of nasties. 1 is a spot where there’s 1 bead missing. *amused.* Second? There’s a bright orange bead in there in place of one pink. Believe it or not, it’s almost impossible to find. It’s almost easier to find it by knowing you’re looking for a slightly larger bead, than by the color. And yes, I apparently added that one by accident too. I had some orange beads left over from another project, and they were just there on the bead cloth.
The 3 latch beads may be plastic, not sure. I’m recycling them from a bracelet that I picked up cheap and broke down for parts. But they are a nice true purple, so complement both colors in the bracelet. EG The Pinkness! …Yeah. This is a very Yachiru bracelet.
