Bracelet Follow Me

I made this bracelet because I love it when I saw the video tutorial at YouTube. It's designed by Svetlana McDaniel. The video is in Russian but it also has English caption. You can watch the tutorial here. The pattern is very simple and easy to follow, what is great for beginners.

My version of this bracelet isn't flat and nice as it was supposed to be. There's no enough room to the 6mm pearls sit between the 8mm pearls. I'm not sure why this happened. It may be because I used a very thick thread (illusion cord 0.25mm) to make the base with pearls.

The materials I used to make it:
- Toho seed beads 11/0, dark amethyst silver lined;
- Miyuki seed beads 11/0, duracoat galvanized silver;
- Darice glass pearls 8mm, 6mm, and 4mm burgundy;
- Illusion cord 0.25mm, clear (for the base);
- C-Lon thread, size D, black (for the embelishment);

I didn't have wire guardians in silver color, so I used seed beads 15/0 (miyuki duracoat galvanized silver) to create a loop where I attached the clasp.
