I've just finished making this and while I love the bracelet, I had to 'finish' it twice, I have a 6 1/2" wrist so made the base rope 25" long as per instructions, however the bracelet with bubbles wouldn't go round 4 times (about 1 1/2" gap) and when it went round 3 times it just fell off.  Anyway I undid the button end and beaded another 1 1/2" and it fits a treat going round 4 times.  I'm only putting this in, If it's meant to only go round 3 times you'll need to take off more than an inch, and for 4 times I'd add an 1 1/2" to 4 times your wrist measurement to allow for the bumps of the beaded beads.  Apart from this minor quibble I loved making it I shall be making the beaded beads to go on a  necklace in futrure as they are so pretty.

Gosh, that is beautiful. I love the concept of the whole thing. It looks like it could do double duty, as a necklace.

Happy Beading.

WOW!! That is so COOL! I love your color choices Gail.  Everything about it is just fabulous. Thanks for sharing.

P.S.  I am SO sorry I didn't reply.  Right now I can't seem to get around to replying to people.

Have a great beady day!

Rachel
