This version was modified slightly. The Materials list calls for a round 4mm bead, however for this bracelet, I used 5mm Melon beads. Since the 5mm bead is slightly larger than the 4mm, I used size 11/0 beads to go around the Melon bead. The instructions also call for the last pass to add five 15/0 seed beads between the 11/0 seed beads - in the version, I added one 15/0 two 11/0 and one 15/0 to give a little more dimension to the bracelet. And the pattern calls for 2 8/0 seed beads to attach the clasp with a jump ring, but I attached the clasp using 7 11/0 seed beads instead.
Below are the components used in this design example. If you would like to make this version yourself, you will need to calculate the quantities of each item to purchase, depending on the length of bracelet you wish to make, etc.
