It took longer to find the right beads than to make the bracelet from Step by step beads Jan 2008 by Dottie Hoeschen. I used a lot less crystals but size 8 and I couldn't find the right spacers so used some size 6 gold beads in my stash. I might do it again. The button is Japanese and bought in Jakarta.

I used KO Japanese bead thread in white. The color was a mistake so I added size 15s for a picot to hide it. The beads are a Japanese mix I bought from Gloria. I should have made a peyote clasp but felt like just using a lobster clasp. My own design such as it is.
I really like the KO thread. It doesn't fray and gets into the needle always with the first pass. I need to buy more of this.
