I'm back, just finished making the Claudia bracelet and am really pleased with the result, the pattern was easy to follow and it took no time at all to finish, well a couple of hours. I used the beads above, from left to right, Hematite Cali Beads, 11/0 Jet Toho Seed Beads and Opaque Ivory White Luster SuperDuo Beads. I thought the three colours would look good together, and as I said I was pleased how it turned out.
I added the clasp a little differently from the pattern, adding a 6mm silver coloured, twisted effect, closed jump ring onto the six beads at the end, and then added a 6mm silver coloured, twisted effect, open jump ring to connect to the clasp. The clasp is a pretty silver plated, 8mm magnetic round clasp with small crystals as decoration. To stitch it together I used two arm lengths of 6lb Fireline and a size 12 beading needle.
