What should we call these? Img_1017

This is going to be a favorite of mine this summer.  I am undecided about replacing the four solid color stone or glass beads with four more of these lacy white designs.  (Looking forward to hearing your opinions about that.)  Thank you's to friends here who pointed me to TB websites that sold this design.

Looks good, I really like it with the additional sparkle from the stones and prisms, it really complements the white based beads. I love you

Agree   I have no idea what they are called, but they are very cool designs!

Love these beads. You have made a great bracelet with them.  I love them with the solid colored stones.' It brings out the colors in the white beads. Really pretty, great summer bracelet.

Great summer bracelet, I like the solid beads as others have said they really bring out the colours in the white beads.

Lovely summery combo! sunny Love the beads look a bit like embroidery to me, but I have no idea what they could be called.
I would leave the solid coloured in it, I had the same problem with my Easter bracelet, I had set my mind on having a purely dotted bracelet, but it looked a bit too busy in the end, next year I will be putting solid ones in between.

This is totally lovely and I agree, you should keep the faceted stones/prisms in there, great pops of color and compliments to the white-based ones!

Modern Hardanger? Hardanger embroidery is traditionally done in white on white, but contemporary embroiders often use some colored threads.

I do like beads on an opaque white base, they really brighten up a bracelet.

Thank you everyone.  I am glad you agree about adding the pop of solid color.  (Plus it saves on the bead budget Laughing )

Not that we get to decide on TB names but Hardanger is the perfect name for zigzag beads and  the black and gray one on the end.  I knew they reminded me of something but could not associate a name with it.

I love the solid colour beads on here too, they make a nice contrast with the more delicate patterned beads.
